On the eve of one of Latin music’s biggest nights, BUCHANAN’S Blended Scotch Whisky brought together artists, influencers and industry VIPs at CASA BUCHANAN’S: THE SPEAKEASY in Las Vegas to raise a glass in celebration of Latin music.
Upon arrival, guests walked into a barbershop where they were welcomed by an actor disguised as BUCHANAN’S founder “James Buchanan,” and escorted to a secret back door which led them into an immersive experience. Throughout the evening, guests sipped on classic and extravagant cocktails, while enjoying vibrant surprise performances by flapper dancers who brought back the flair of the 1920s and danced to the rhythm of urban reggaeton hits.
To celebrate this momentous occasion, the Buchanan’s familia put their mixology skills to the test and created new signature cocktails inspired by their favorite flavors. Global Latin superstar and brand ambassador, J Balvin, who recently headlined Coachella, created the new “Viva Buchanan’s” cocktail and was seen torching jalapeños to top it off. GRAMMY-winning DJ duo Play-N-Skillz, the producers behind the pop hit “Con Calma Remix” featuring Daddy Yankee, Snow and Katy Perry, created the smoking “Rio de Putumayo” cocktail served through a copper still steamer with dry ice. The newest member of la familia, Dominican artist DaniLeigh, brought her Caribbean flair to her “Master Piña” cocktail.
