Firefly Distillery, South Carolina’s oldest working distillery, is releasing a new spirit, Distillery Expressions Low Country Gin, on Friday, October 9th. Made in small batches with organic juniper and select botanicals, the new spirit is exclusively available at the Park Circle distillery.
According to Firefly, this new American dry gin features "flavors of crisp juniper and citrus aromas flow into a sweet and woody heart with a clean, dry pepper finish."
“The demand for gin has soared in the past year and it is a favorite of mine, so naturally we wanted to add this to the mix of our products,” head distiller and general manager Jay Macmurphy said. “It’s a versatile spirit that can be enjoyed in a variety of ways and we’ll be using local ingredients, so we’re keeping it close to home.”
To celebrate the launch of the new spirit, Firefly Distillery will debut two new gin cocktails featured on its menu including The Bluebird, Garden Party, and the Distiller’s Gin & Tonic using local mixers from Cannonborough Beverage Co, Bittermilk, and Sallie’s Greatest. In addition, local jam and syrup company Sallie’s Greatest, will be on-site from 1 pm - 4 pm offering free samples of mixers and syrups to create tasty gin cocktail recipes.
