Dos Hombres Mezcal Launches at Selfridges

The highly anticipated Mezcal from Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston is now available in the UK, exclusively at Selfridges.

Dos Hombres, the Mezcal founded by American co-stars and long-time friends Aaron Paul and Bryan Cranston, is launching for the first time in the UK exclusively at Selfridges.

What makes two successful American actors take a road trip to one of the most remote villages in Mexico? Mezcal. Not being drunk on it (at least not at the time) but having a genuine love for the complex character of this relatively obscure spirit. It was in the remote village of San Luis del Rio where they met 3rd generation Mezcal maker, Gregorio Velasco.

Mezcal is made from the heart of the agave plant in much the same way as it has been for generations. Dos Hombres Mezcal is truly artisanal, made using old-world methods including being cooked in a covered underground pit, with no use of modern technology. This results in a smooth, slightly smoky spirit that is best enjoyed neat, on ice or in a cocktail.

Aaron Paul, Dos Hombres Founder, comments: “We love all things Mezcal. Love the process and the community behind this beautiful spirit. What sets Dos Hombres apart is the smoothness of the Mezcal; we wanted to find one that everyone would love, even people that have never tried it before. Something inviting yet with the slight smoke that people love about the spirit. If you love spirits, you’ll love Dos Hombres.”

Selfridges Buyer, Terry Threlfall, says: “The arrival of Dos Hombres in the UK has been hotly anticipated and we’re delighted to be launching it this summer. For those not in the know, Mezcal is tequila’s smokier, smoother cousin and is set to be the next big thing in spirits. Dos Hombres is truly unique and versatile, and we’re excited for customers to try it.”
