Breaking Bad Stars' Next Project is... Tequila

Aaron Paul & Bryan Cranston


Lots of celebrities have their own alcohol brands these days. Ryan Reynolds owns Aviation Gin, Sam Neill runs Two Paddocks wines, and even Dan Ackroyd has a brand of vodka that bizarely comes in a bottle shaped like a skull.


Finally, Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have broken into the celebrity-owned-alcohol business with their new venture, Dos Hombres, an artesenal Mezcal. As best as I can tell, Mezcal is like smoky tequila - but do not quote me on this.

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. What’s yours? Go to to get a bottle of your own. Follow us at @Doshombres and @Mezcal to hear more about Mezcal and Dos Hombres. — AP & BC

The pair, who starred together on the hit AMC drama for six years, have been teasing a collaboration for some time, starting with a string of identical tweets.






One would expect these hints to be about something Breaking Bad-related - like the long-rumored feature film continuation of the series - or perhaps another project that would reunite the two beloved stars onscreen once more but, nope, it's just been about booze this whole time. I'll never trust a celebrity ever again.
