Buchanan’s whisky, the official spirit sponsor of the 16th Annual Latin GRAMMY Awards, celebrated the nomination of Puerto Rican Reggaeton artist, J Alvarez, during an exclusive dinner with close friends and colleagues on Tuesday, Nov. 17.
Buchanan’s recognized J Alvarez, who was nominated for Best Urban Performance this Thursday, Nov. 19, for following his passion, his dedication to his music, and his continued growth as an artist. Similar to the brand’s founder, James Buchanan’s, Alvarez is making a name for himself in the world of music the same way Buchanan’s created a whisky worthy of his name.
J Alvarez said a few words during the evening, thanking his family, friends, and fans for their encouragement throughout his journey and acknowledging Buchanan’s support during the past two years.
“With dedication and hard work, we’ve accomplished another Latin GRAMMY nomination. Music is my passion and I’m excited to celebrate A Lo Grande the success we’ve achieved this year with my family and friends. Thanks to Buchanan’s for its support,” he said.
During the evening, guests enjoyed a whisky tasting as well as specialty cocktails, created by mixologist, J.D. Marin, that were carefully selected to pair with the dinner.
