We visited the distillery from downtown Charleston to do something different while in town. It’s about 30-40 minutes outside of the city and the Uber there was reasonably priced. There was a food truck, live music (at least while we were there on a Saturday...More

More whiskeys, vodkas and rums than 10 years ago when I first went there. The room hasn't changed a bit, but the selection was much wider and more varied. Loved the hand crafted whiskey. Will go back again a lot sooner than the last visit.

They have tasting of various flavors if you're interesting in it. Super nice people working there. This place is associated with Deep Water winery and the entire area is something to see. Fun to check out. Worth the drive out of Charleston

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!

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. :)
