“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.”
