Born from friendship and craftsmanship, Luca Mariano Ambassador 86 is a limited release to coincide with the upcoming 2023 NFL season and to celebrate the career of Green Bay Packer’s former Wide Receiver and Super Bowl XXX1 Champion Antonio Freeman.

Like Antonio’s Super Bowl victory, Luca Mariano Ambassador 86 is a three-barrel blend of greatness hand-picked by Antonio Freeman. It’s a 3 Barrel Small Batch, high rye Kentucky straight bourbon, aged 8 years and 6 days, and comes in at 86 proof.

This limited release not only celebrates Luca Mariano’s and Antonio’s commitment to excellence but also pays homage to the passion of a champion through its name. Antonio wore jersey number 86 throughout his NFL career and was known for his toughness, power, and ability to make big plays. His Super Bowl XXX1 championship with Green Bay cemented his place as an NFL legend.

“Being a professional football player, you’re part of a team, and then suddenly I wasn’t when I retired, but Luca Mariano swept me off my feet and put me back on a team. I couldn’t be more proud to be representing Luca Mariano’s first 8-year product.”- Antonio Freeman #86, Former Green Bay Packer Wide Receiver& Super Bowl XXX1 Champion

“Antonio Freeman is a good friend my son and I bonded with over our love of the Green Bay Packers. To celebrate our friendship and our love of bourbon, we created Luca Mariano Ambassador 86 together using our most mature bourbon. This product is a result of friendship and greatness.”- Francesco S. Viola, Founder & CEO
