New Breaking Bad? No. Bryan Cranston And Aaron Paul Were Teasing Something Else

For weeks now, Breaking Bad actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul teased some kind of future collaboration. Though they never said anything about it being related to Breaking Bad, people naturally thought it might be. As it turns out, it’s not at all about Breaking Bad.

Cranston and Paul today officially announced a new booze brand. The pair are working together on a Mezcal brand known as Dos Hombres, or Two Brothers.

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 Doshombres.com to get a bottle of your own. Follow us at @Doshombres and @Mezcal to hear more about Mezcal and Dos Hombres. — AP & BC

A joint statement released on Instagram states that Cranston and Paul sat down in 2016 in a New York sushi bar to talk about what they might work on together in the future. Booze was the answer.

“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,” reads the statement. “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?”

Dos Hombres is not that kind of Mezcal, which the pair said is “just some bullsh*t gimmick.”

Their booze brand is “real, artisinal Mezcal made by hand in Mexico.”

Cranston and Paul traveled to Oaxaca to find the perfect ingredients for their Mezcal. “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 gruelling search throughout that majestic landscape we believed we may have found our place,” they said.

You can go to the Dos Hombres website to learn more and order yourself a bottle, which costs $58 USD for 750ml. The booze only ships to Arizona, California, Nevada, New Jersey, and New York.

Cranston and Paul are not the only Breaking Bad alums working on booze brands. Hank Schrader’s in-universe home-made beer, Schraderbrau, is being produced in real life, too.

As for the Breaking Bad series, a movie starring Jesse Pinkman (Aaron Paul) is in the works. The show takes place after the events of Breaking Bad, but that’s pretty much all we know. It’s unclear if Walter White (Bryan Cranston) will appear given what happened in the show. But he could appear, at least potentially, in flashback sequences.
