Firefly Sweet Tea Vodka is the distillery's newest product on the market. The product is an infusion of American Tea and Firefly Vodka. Firefly Distillery is proud to bring true southern products to the marketplace. (70 proof)

I was in Hilton Head for a week and we drank alot of sweet tea. It's a southern thing. It's very good, like a super rich iced tea. Had it at a few restaurants. The non-alcoholic kind.

Went to a liquor store in Hilton head and they had a massive stack of Fireflys Sweet Tea vodka and everyone one seemed to buy one or two bottles. The clerk asked me where I was from and if I liked sweet tea. I tried and it everyone one I was with loved it. It was possibly one of the greatest drinks I have ever had. We mixed it half and half with Minute Maid Lemonade it tastes exactly like sweet tea. If you like sweet drinks that are not girly this is it.

Amazing. Anyone else experience this stuff?

I agree with you thesull. I hate it when I travel and can't get sweet tea. I love some good sweet tea.

Not sure how the tea is up north, but I know the McDonald's now (or will in the near future) all have Sweet Tea. I can't say if they all use the same recipe or not, but around here is pretty good.

Still have yet to open my bottle that I got in August. A few friends picked up some bottles while in the Carolinas have enjoyed theirs.

But January 1st they are going national.

I just ordered a case from a local liquor store hopefully they will be able to get it this week. It's going for 23 dollars per liter pretty pricey. NH has cheaper booze than MA and all the liquor stores have it on order.

Just an update.

Got my case of 12 bottles today. Cost about $280. Which is about $24 dollars a bottle well worth it. Giving a few as gifts and keeping the rest for myself. Waiting till they start stocking shleves in NH with it for cheap.

I overheard my friends talking about this down in LA... I guess it's getting big.

Also, since I don't like vodka.... people said sweet tea and hot damn... like a cinnamon tea.
