[embed-1] Charleston’s oldest distillery is pivoting their operations to help meet the growing demand for hand sanitizer. Starting Friday, Firefly Distillery will offer half gallons of hand sanitizer for $25 at their new Park Circle location on Spruill Avenue. Patrons will be limited to one bottle per purchase.

We are pleased to now be able to offer it starting this week.”
In order to pivot their production, the distillery had to learn the ins-and-outs of permitting to ensure they were compliant with Federal Drug Administration (FDA) and Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) regulations.
Firefly is shifting their alcohol production but are still selling their spirits in the airstream in front of the distillery from 12-5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
