The Firefly Distillery

Firefly Distillery is located on Wadmalaw Island, South Carolina, 20 miles south of Charleston. Visitors can enjoy tastings and purchase Firefly Spirits including Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka, our best-selling Lemonade Vodka, our new small-batch bourbon, and many other distillery specialties. It is the oldest working distillery in the state and has become a top destination in the Charleston area. As we expand the Firefly experience with our new distillery in North Charleston near Park Circle, our Wadmalaw Island location will remain open for tastings.

Opening early 2020, our new home is a state of the art distillery featuring a 500-gallon capacity Vendome copper pot still. Driving innovation and honoring Southern tradition and hospitality, the new Firefly Distillery encompasses 25,000 square feet and features intimate and open spaces for hosting weddings, company events and gatherings for friends and family. The Distillery also features an outdoor stage and expansive fields for festivals and concerts and a home for Charleston’s best food trucks. Set under the oaks and surrounded by marsh views, it will be a top destination for locals and visitors alike to enjoy tours and tastings, live music, food trucks, events, and a gift shop.

We look forward to welcoming you to our new distillery in early 2020, and at our current distillery until then. While you are there, check out the Deep Water Vineyard (previously Irvin House Vineyards,) now owned and operated by the Freiwald Family.
