Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul launch new Mezcal company

It is my great pleasure to announce that Breaking Bad’s Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have reunited off-screen in a bromance business venture.

The former co-stars have founded a mezcal company named Dos Hombres.

Former Breaking Bad co-stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have launched their very own mezcal company. Introducing Dos Hombres.

The news was announced via Instagram in a post that read, “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.”

Apparently, this genius idea popped into their heads while they were eating sushi together in New York City. It soon prompted a compelling quest:

“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.”

They explained it was out of the city centre, down a dirt road and in a tiny village where they found ‘the one’. The significance of this moment was truely captured in their words,“Holy shit it was perfect. We looked at each other and just simply nodded.”

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 a 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.

The news may disappoint fans as there was massive speculation earlier in the week that the project the co-stars were teasing was related to a Breaking Bad sequel.

Nonetheless, we welcome Dos Hombres and the gift that is Bryan and Aaron’s off-screen friendship.
