In 2016, the era of Breaking Bad was over, but the friendship between superstars Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul was far from it. In fact, the two had started to muse on ideas for businesses, knowing that they wouldn’t be able to share the screen together for quite some time. Over sushi in New York City, they decided that mezcal would be it, and booked their first trip to Oaxaca Mexico to search for producers.
The pair found the perfect producers in San Luis del Rio, a small town almost three hours south-west of Oaxaca City. Espadin varietal agaves are grown for 6 years, then roasted, milled, fermented, and distilled into the first release from Dos Hombres.
Meant for sipping, but also fantastic in cocktails - check out the brand recipes here.
