Bryan Cranston And Aaron Paul Are Teaming Up To Sling A Legal Drug — Mezcal

Dos Hombres

The actors behind everyone’s favorite fictional drug dealing duo, Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, have been teasing a mysterious project on social media over the last few weeks. If you read some of the chatter, we wouldn’t blame you for thinking the duo’s project would have something to do with the upcoming Breaking Bad movie coming to Netflix. But considering — spoiler alert for a show that ended six years ago — one of the bald-headed leads didn’t make it out of the series alive, the prospect of seeing Walter White and Jesse Pinkman share the screen again is almost non-existent.

Instead, it turns out that the duo is going back into the drug-slinging business — this time legally — with a special Mezcal that seems on-par with the high-quality blue crystal meth they were cooking as White and Pinkman.

Dubbed, Dos Hombres, the idea for the mezcal first came together over a sushi dinner between the two in New York some years back. “We had the time of our lives while shooting Breaking Bad and truly built a special bond. Knowing that we couldn’t share the screen for quite a while — our thoughts turned to a new project,” says Aaron Paul on an Instagram post unveiling the project,

Three years ago we sat in a sushi bar in New York. Talking about life and what we could possibly do down the road together. We had the time of our lives while shooting Breaking Bad and truly built a very special bond. Knowing that we couldn’t share the screen for quite a while – our thoughts turned to a new project. We sipped cocktails and thought about what it should be. The younger one looked at his drink and said, you know what we should do? We should do a really special Mezcal. The older one said, you mean the liquor with a worm at the bottom? Nah, that was just some bullshit gimmick, I mean real, artesanal Mezcal made by hand in Mexico. After that dinner we couldn’t get the idea out of our heads. So, we started traveling to Oaxaca to see if we could find it, and we mean it had to be “it,” something so damn good even people who don’t think they like Mezcal will love it. It had to be perfect or we weren’t going to do it. We searched high and low all over Oaxaca, met incredible people along the way and after a beautiful yet grueling search throughout that majestic landscape we believed we may have found our place. Our Mezcal. It was on a dirt-road, in tiny village, hours away from the center of town, we found it and it was perfect. Holy shit it was perfect. We looked at each other and just simply nodded. This is it. We named it Dos Hombres – two guys on a quest. It’s been a long and crazy journey and we couldn’t be happier to share this with you and the rest of the world. We are crazy about the taste, the aroma, and the versatility of this smokey, age-old alcohol. Try it, and let us know what you think. We are certain you will love it. Well, that’s our story.

Props to Paul and Cranston for sourcing their product legitimately and involving themselves first-hand in the curation and creation of their Mezcal. Also how great is that name? We’re glad they hinted at their past without doing something that overtly highlighted their involvement.

“We named it Dos Hombres – two guys on a quest,” Paul’s post reads. “It’s been a long and crazy journey and we couldn’t be happier to share this with you and the rest of the world.”
