Breaking Bad star, Aaron Paul had a near-unbeatable year including the launch of his new mezcal line, “Dos Hombres” and his “Breaking Bad” film “El Camino” and his fortieth birthday. Forty of Paul’s family and friends including Breaking Bad costar, Bryan Cranston and wife, Lauren, and one-year old daughter, Story-Anabelle. The lavish celebration included a 300k price tag, fire breathing performances, and pool chess.
The superstar actor stayed in a fourteen room private villa with endless ocean views, a private butler, chef and its own pool, of course, coming with a 25k price tag. The Ani Resort is known for its countless infinity pools, decadent atmosphere and being popular to celebrities like Cardi B, Pitbull, Christina Augeilara, Vin Diesel, Shakira among other A-List celebrity guests. Paul commented on Instagram “Never have I felt more taken care of in my life.” Guests sipped on “Dos Hombres” mezcal made by a private bartender.
Breaking Bad stars’ Cranston and Paul launched “Dos Hombres” in July. The founders paid special attention to detail in their hand-picked, artisanal line of Mezcal. They valued the prestige of their brand and what would become a farm-to-table experience.
Paul and Cranston had been longing to try a business venture since the BB series ended in 2013. They both discovered their common interest of rich & flavorful Mezcal during a conversation in 2016 while enjoying sushi in New York City. Cranston and Paul sought out to find the best and most authentic and artisanal mezcal in Mexico.
Paul proudly boasted on Instagram recently, “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 a tiny village, hours away from the centre of town, we found it and it was perfect. Holy shit it was perfect.”
According to the website for Dos Hombres, it is to be enjoyed in an extended glass with a waiting period to allow time for the flavor to become “awake.” People enjoying Mezcal must be encouraged to consume responsibly.
On August 27, 2019, the Breaking Bad star’s actual birthday, guests were observed pairing Dos Hombres crafted-cocktails with celebrity chef, Chef Juan Vargas’ unique Dominican cuisine. While on a sunset yacht guests indulged in an elaborate farm-to-table feast of grilled fish in banana leaves, fresh tuna tatar and chicken takki.
