[image-1]UPDATE: As of Fri. Feb. 14, the Firefly team has announced that they will still have their opening tomorrow starting at 11 a.m. but there will be no tastings or liquor sales.

Owner Scott Newitt says: “Due to a delay in the alcohol beverage license transfer to our new location, we will not be able to offer tastings or liquor sales tomorrow. We’ll still be open for free tours of the new distillery with live music from One Kool Blow and food from Braised in the South. Non-alcoholic beverages will be available and our gift shop will be open. We look forward to sharing the opening date for the Tasting Room soon.”

[content-2] When we chatted with Firefly’s GM Jay MacMurphy last August, he told us that the expansion from Wadmalaw to Park Circle was a practical business move. Firefly, which ships its goods nationwide, will now be operating out of a 20,000 square foot space, as opposed to its former space that sat at about 4,000 square feet.

The massive space includes a gift shop, tasting room, event space, and conference room.

Firefly still plans on hosting a grand opening party on Sat. May 2 — this will be a big ol’ shindig and music festival.

The distillery will be open Mondays-Saturdays, 11 a.m.-5 p.m.
