It is a cool place to check out. For $6 you can sample 6 of their liquors and you get to keep the shot glass. The staff is friendly also.

The distillery was a nice finish to the wine tours. The guys serving we're fun, but not informative. They simply checked ur sheet to know what to pour and then moved on. Maybe that's the system, but a little detail on what ur sampling could...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. :)
