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

If you’re looking for something a little different to do when visiting the low country, you have to check out Firefly Distillery on Wadmalaw Island. It’s a little off the beaten path, but well worth the travel time. On the premises, there is a petting...More

We made a stop at the Firefly Distillery while on our mini vacation and we loved the ambiance of their outdoor venue. You pay to sample their spirits which were good but our barkeep was clearly on a mission to move 'em in and get...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

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.

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. :)
