In case you’re wondering, the name Firefly comes from the simple joy that fireflies bring. Firefly co-founder, Scott Newitt tells us, “There is a basic element of happiness that people experience when they are around. I remember being mesmerized by them when I was younger. I used to catch them in mason jars. I wanted to bring that feeling to life. I think our Sweet Tea Vodka does that, especially when it’s served out of a mason jar.”
