Firefly distilling 'coming home'

Firefly Distillery likes to call itself a South Carolina company. However, it had been having its increasingly popular sweet tea vodka and other spirits made in Florida and Kentucky.

Now, the Charleston County (SC) Council has amended a zoning regulation to allow Firefly to begin distilling on its property there, according to Firefly's Jim Irvin.

"Last year our products generated $550,000 worth of excised tax dollars for South Carolina," Irvin told ABC News 4. "This year we'll probably do in excess of $850,000."
