For a while now, Briyappointed to find out that it wasn’t a Breaking Bad movie, the actual reveal has got us extremely interested. That’s because what they were actually working on was a mezcal they’re calling Dos Hombres.
A very close cousin of tequila, mezcal is a much more versatile spirit than for which it gets credit. And this one is shaping up to be something special. Crafted from the finest Espadin agave hand-picked in the hills of a small village outside Oaxaca, Mexico, this might just be one of the best mezcals currently available. The reason for this is simple: the village of San Luis del Rio, where the spirit is made, has been crafting mezcal for generations and benefits from a unique blend of rich soil and adequate rainfall — leading to near-perfect agave plants. The result is an inebriant that’s both strong and smooth, flavorful and aromatic, and everything else for which you could hope. Bottles are available now for $58 apiece.
