Best Use of Old Fruit

High Wire Distilling’s Bradford Watermelon Brandy

Staff Pick

What’s most encouraging about our new crop of local microdistillers is that they are not just churning out run-of-the-mill booze but are exploring local and heirloom ingredients and coming up with creative new spirits. The most intriguing this year was High Wire’s Watermelon Brandy, made with heirloom melons grown by the Bradford family in Sumter. The results are surprising: It’s not candy-sweet liquor but a smooth, crisp spirit with a delicate touch of pure watermelon flavor.
