Bryan Cranston & Aaron Paul Swap Meth For Mezcal

Breaking Bad stars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have entered the celebrity alcohol game with the release of Dos Hombres Mezcal. Ditching the meth racket of their on-screen characters and investing in booze, the duo’s mezcal is a smooth drinking spirit sure to please even the fussiest agave purists.

In an Instagram post shared by both Cranston and Paul, the two explained how they set out to create a “real, artisanal Mezcal made by hand in Mexico,” with both “crazy about the taste, the aroma, and the versatility of this smokey, age-old alcohol.” 

Distilled by San Luis del Rio, a small village in the mezcal heavy region of Oaxaca, Dos Hombres is made from Espadín agave that’s a minimum of six years old. The agave is cooked underground for four days after being harvested to bring out the natural sugars. It’s then ground into a paste by a traditional stone wheel, often pulled by a donkey. This mash is left to ferment in wooden tubs for between 7-10 days before the final two-day distilling process transforms the mash into a drinkable liquid.

The end result is a supple liqueur with hints of apple, mango, pineapple, local Oaxacan fruits, smoke and wood. Dos Hombres is an easy to consume mezcal with a price to match, retailing for US$90 a bottle online.

This isn’t the first Breaking Bad related alcohol product, with actor Dean Norris releasing Schraderbrau beer earlier this year – named after his character, DEA agent Hank Schrader.
