This place is out of the way which makes it a fun day trip. Got to sample a few firefly brands. Sweet tea is great! They also had a food truck and live music that day. It was a great experience!

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.

Our visit was a quick one, but enjoyable. The Distillery and the Vineyard are basically the same place in one stop just two different buildings. It's a nice enough place. Tastings and buying is essentially it. There was live music the day we were there....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. :)
