The distillery known for its sweet tea-infused vodka is constructing its new facility at 1210 Valdosta St. in North Charleston, a 16-acre site between South Rhett and Spruill avenues. The new facility is scheduled to be operational by the fall of 2019.
Scott Newitt, president of Firefly, said in a statement that the Valdosta Street facility will allow the distillery to offer expanded tours and tastings.
“We are very excited about our new distillery experience coming to North Charleston,” he said.
North Charleston Mayor Keith Summey said he is glad to see Firefly taking part in the “revitalization story” of the Park Circle and Spruill Avenue area.
“Firefly’s welcomed expansion into North Charleston is taking a former public works transfer site and reimagining it into a sprawling destination within the heart of our city,” he said in a statement.
Hiring for the new positions at Firefly is slated to begin in early 2019.
