Garden & Gun magazine’s fifth-annual Made in the South Awards – the magazine’s annual hunt for the best Southern-made products -- is on! This year, G&G (in partnership with the Savannah College of Art and Design) will be offering a $10,000 grand prize to the overall winner. Please consider entering your Williamsburg business or product to be a 2014 winner!
The awards are open to any Southern business with a Southern-made product that will be available through January 2015 in one of five categories:

A panel of editors and guest judges, including James Beard Award-winning chef Chris Hastings (Food), Alabama clothing designer Natalie Chanin (Style & Design), Brooks Reitz, Charleston restaurateur and owner of Jack Rudy Cocktail Co. (Drink), outdoorsman and G&G contributor T. Edward Nickens (Outdoors), and interior designer Celerie Kemble (Home), will choose a winner and several honorable mentions in each category. Those selected will appear in the pages of the December 2014/January 2015 issue.
Last year’s winners included small-batch ice cream from the Florida Panhandle (Southern Craft Creamery), sweet potato vodka out of Snow Hill, North Carolina (Covington Spirits), fillet knives handwrought in the South Carolina Midlands (Red Forgeworks), and a line of saddle-leather-and-steel furniture made in Marfa, Texas (Garza Furniture).
