Proof66 Notes

Firefly Distillery was founded by Jim Irvin (a graduate from Vanderbilt University in chemistry) and Scott Newitt (a graduate of Louisiana State University) in 2008. The roots of the distillery are in Jim Irvin's entrance to the wine business with muscadine grapes in 2000. Meeting Newitt--then a liquor distributor--they entered the spirits industry with a small still and the idea for a sweet tea vodka in 2008. The tea used to infuse the vodkas are grown in South Carolina from a plantation only five miles away. In 2009, Firefly reached a deal with Sazerac to produce their products out of a combination of Barton and Buffalo Trace Distilleries. According to the filing with the federal Tax and Trade Bureau, the production is now done in combination with their South Carolina plant and Sazerac facilities. 

Firefly Sweet Tea vodka is made from a base of muscadine wine grapes--a bit unusual in the vodka world but growing in popularity. It is distilled in small batches at the distillery using locally produced grapes (in fact, owned by one of the distillery owners) and infused with tea, also grown locally.

Firefly Mint Tea flavored vodka uses the same all natural tea and sugar as their original tea-infused vodka but with the additional flavor of mint.

In 2010, the Beverage Testing Institute called Firefly Mint Tea "Delicious, layered, and pure."

Really nice balance of sweet and mint. No problem blending this down with water either 1:1 or 2:1. It tastes exactly like Snapple with a kick. Excellent drink on ice and water in the mid afternoon.
