Small token price for some great tasting and interesting samples of liquors. Interesting environment and atmosphere. Very laid back and a wonderful country feel to the area. Visit some of the animals and say hi to Ida Claire in the vineyards she will be happy...More

By far best offering in the tasting was the lemonade vodka. Be sure to take some popcorn to Ida Claire in the vineyard - as I discovered, if you come to say hi without popcorn she will be a sad girl!

We we're in the area so stopped in. Basically there is a distillery shop and a winery shop with purchased tastings available. Bought some moonshine as a gift. I would not recommend a special trip for this site. Very limited appealMore

Visited here after the Tea Plantation. As others have recommended it is a good combo as they are very close. The distillery and wine tastings are in different buildings right next to each other. They are not big places but quaint and laid back. The...More

This place is awesome. They have live music, food trucks, etc on Saturdays. Places to sit and eat, picnic areas, beautiful vegetable garden, animals. Very family-friendly. Attached to the Deep Water Vineyard but I think they are moving, don't know when. Tastings are fun and...More

Thanks for this review! We are in the process of building a new Distillery in North Charleston, but won't be fully moved in for quite some time. Thinking towards the end of 2019. Find us on Facebook for updates! Hope to see you again soon.

There are some interesting combos and flavors going on but the quality isn't quite there yet. Probably not worth going out of your way for.

My Daughter and I visited late morning and both the distillery and the winery are on the premises. You can do tours through a separate facility but we chose to do the walk-in tastings which was a bargain, 6 tastings for $6.00 and we even...More

We visited here and the adjoining Deep Water Vineyard. The wine tasting/liquor tastings are fun. The wines are obviously quite specialised because of the climate and environment, so they don’t really compare to other wines in terms of quality. That said, they are tasty and...More

Not a big alcohol drinker but was well worth it and found some interesting local drinks I now love. Stay for a drink outside and take in the festive atmosphere.

Make sure to stop here while in the Charleston area. It's off the beaten path, but worth the drive. It's at the same location as DeepWater so you get 2 for 1. It's also a short drive from the Charleston Tea Plantation. Make sure to...More

If you go to their website, it lists on a map where their products are sold. I tried to post the link but I am unable to. Just google firefly vodka and click the 'find the fly' tab at the top of their page. :)
