The spirit of Firefly Distillery
A brand that encompasses more than 25 magnificent spirits was born through the vision of Jim Irvin & Scott Newitt. The newly built Firefly Distillery is located near Park Circle in North Charleston and it is a stone’s throw from the beautiful Noisette Creek. A genuine mix of scientists, craftsmen, entrepreneurs, comedians, and cooks is the foundation of this distillery. The story started when Jim & Scott met each other through the wine business, became friends and then decided to establish a business together. Jim’s wife – Ann & Scott’s wife – Trisha, the four of them worked together in order for the legislation to make distilling, sampling and bottling spirits an affordable process at a distillery in South Carolina. Currently, Ann’s son Jay MacMurphy is the head distiller and he is best described as a person full of ideas who keeps on experimenting to create something unique.
‘We named our distillery Firefly because Fireflies are magical. We remember catching them in mason jars and we love that feeling of mystery and southern nostalgia.’By Scott Newitt, Co-founder.
