Firefly Distillery introduces a moonshine  

Firefly Distillery has a talent for tapping into Southern flavor. They led the sweet-tea vodka trend, then introduced Sea Island Rums and a line of liqueurs including banana pudding.

So it makes perfect sense that in mid- to late-March, Firefly Moonshines begin hitting local stores. “The urban-country thing has gotten so cool lately that my partner, Jim Irvin, and I decided to share our shine with everyone,” notes co-owner Scott Newitt. The 100.7-proof White Lightening is joined by five 58.2- to 60.9-proof flavors. Find cocktail recipes at and start sipping.
