Road to Backwoods Fam Jam: Abbas Shoraka – Marlin and Barrel Distillery

backwoods fam jam

The Backwoods Fam Jam is an event that is bringing a local influence to its market and the attendees will be incredibly thankful for it! From the local acts on the bill to the local products being consumed, those that attend the Backwoods Fam Jam will be immersed with Florida flare and will be loving life. One of the many local aspects of the festival is the alcohol that will be consumed onsite. I got to sit down with Abbas Shoraka who is the brand ambassador for Marlin and Barrel, a local distillery from Fernandina Beach, FL and the provider spirits for this weekend’s Backwoods Fam Jam. We talked about this weekend’s event and, of course, liquor. Take a listen to the interview below:
