While many were hoping for a new theatrical project, former Breaking Bad co-stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul do have a new collaboration, but it may not be exactly what you were expecting. Cranston and Paul have taken to social media today to announce their venture, a mezcal brand called Dos Hombres.

“We had the time of our lives while shooting Breaking Bad and truly built a very special bond,” Cranston said on Instagram. “Knowing that we couldn’t share the screen for quite a while – our thoughts turned to a new project.”

Again, that project is Dos Hombres, and the first bottle is Espadin, named after the type of agave most commonly used for mezcal. Espadin possesses hints of apple, mango, Oaxacan fruits, wood, and smoke.

“We are crazy about the taste, the aroma, and the versatility of this smokey, age-old alcohol,” Cranston and Paul proclaimed.

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.

If you watched Cranston and Paul in Breaking Bad, chances are you caught glimpses of whiskey on numerous occasions. Walter White’s drink of choice, for example, was Dimple Pinch scotch. The two obviously chose to go a different route with their alcohol brand, however, so if mezcal is more your speed, you can go ahead and order a bottle of Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul’s Espadin for $58.

Not NYC, not LA.
