ATLANTICO Rum, along with partner and Latin crossover sensation Enrique Iglesias, have signed on as the official rum sponsor of this year’s Billboard Latin Music Conference & Awards Presented by State Farm.

To mark the occasion, ATLANTICO Rum will present the ATLANTICO Platinum Hit, its signature cocktail especially created to commemorate the music industry’s annual event. Attendees will have the opportunity to enjoy a unique recipe by ATLANTICO Rum.

“I am excited to bring ATLANTICO Rum to this year’s Billboard Latin Music Conference & Awards Presented by State Farm and share it with so many of my colleagues,” said Enrique Iglesias. “I have always been drawn to the culture and sophistication of the Caribbean, and this is an excellent way to share that flavor and lifestyle with others.”

The Billboard Latin Music Conference & Awards Presented by State Farm will take place on April 23-26, 2012 in Miami. The awards show will be broadcast live by Telemundo on April 26, 2012.

ATLANTICO Rum has quickly created a name for itself since entering the market in 2008 by winning many prestigious awards that label this spirit as the super-premium rum. ATLANTICO Rum continues to raise the bar on superiority by becoming the official rum sponsor at this year’s nationally acclaimed Latin Billboard Music Conference & Awards.

1-3/4 oz ATLANTICO Platino
1/4 oz fresh lime juice
