Ultimate Beverage Challenge 85 points - With a nose that calls to the drinker like a freshly brewed pot of black tea, this vodka is comforting throughout. Refreshing flavors of homemade sweet tea dominate the palate with each sip, smacked with enough sweetness to be fun but on best behavior. - 2018 Ultimate Spirits Challenge.April/2018
Created in a small still on Wadmalaw Island, South Carolina, Firefly became the world's first hand-crafted sweet tea flavored vodka. Keeping true to its Southern roots, Firefly is distilled four times, infused with tea grown on a plantation five miles from the distillery and blended with real Louisiana sugar cane. It tastes just like real sweet tea, but with an even sweeter kick! Imitators try to achieve the taste of tea with artificial flavors and you will instantly know the difference with one sip. The real stuff just tastes better!
From muscadine grapes grown right on our property to real tea grown a couple of miles away at America's only tea plantation, our products are crafted with real ingredients, from our own backyard. Firefly Distillery opened its doors in 2008 and is one of the very few in the country to be both a vineyard and a distillery. The largest micro-distillery in South Carolina, Firefly Distillery even has a tasting room, where people may taste Firefly products and purchase bottles right on the property. Visitors may partake in wine tastings and winery tours within the 11 acres of muscadine grapes at the vineyard, or take a quick drive down the road to the Charleston Tea Plantation for tours any day of the week. Apart from being home to Jim and Ann Irvin, Firefly Distillery is also home to many furry friends.
