Breaking Bad's Bryan Cranston And Aaron Paul Just Launched Their Own Mezcal

Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul have launched their own brand of mezcal, after building a 'special bond' while filming Breaking Bad.

Dos Hombres is a 'real, artesanal mezcal made by hand in Mexico', according to a post both actors shared on their social media accounts today.

In the lengthy post, Cranston wrote: "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."

This 'new project' turned out to be booze-related and the pair decided to go into mezcal, but not just any old mezcal - they wanted to make 'something so damn good even people who don't think they like mezcal will love it'.

The post goes on to say the two mates went out to Oaxaca and met with people who could help them find the booze of their dreams, which they eventually found, of course.

"We named it Dos Hombres - two guys on a quest," the post reads. "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."

Now while a brand-new celebrity-backed beverage is always welcomed in my heart, it seems as though some fans might be a little disappointed to learn that the recent flurry of photos Paul and Cranston have shared on social media aren't related to the highly-anticipated Breaking Bad movie.

Last month, eagle-eyed fans went wild after Paul and Cranston both shared a photo of two cute donkeys with the cryptic caption: 'Soon'.

Of course, we now know that the two donkeys are a reference to the Dos Hombres Espadin Mezcal bottle, but many people thought it was a subtle hint that the pair were set to play drug mules (donkey, mule, let's not split hairs) in an upcoming movie.

Fans needn't be too down-hearted, though, the two-hour long movie is definitely on the cards with Cranston saying in November: "Yes, there appears to be a movie version of Breaking Bad, but I honestly have not even read the script. So, there's questions if we would even see Walter White in this movie."

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the flick will focus on Paul's character Jesse Pinkman in the years following the show's finale.

Until then you can get yourself a bottle of Cranston and Paul's booze and wait for the movie to drop.
