Aaron Paul was sure to celebrate his 40th birthday in style! With guests and family including his wife, Lauren, Daughter, Story-Anabelle and even Breaking Bad costar, Bryan Cranston. Paul, best known for role as “Jesse Pinkman” in the HBO series “Breaking Bad,” stayed nearly two-weeks in the Dominican Republic celebrating his birthday, the launch of him and Cranston’s mezcal line, “Dos Hombres” and their Breaking Bad movie, “El Camino.”
Aaron and guests 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 at The Ani Private Resort.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.”
The guests were sure to take advantage of the world-class snorkeling, games like pool chess and even private local-entertainment while sipping on Dos Hombres tequila. Guests were seen enjoying hand-crafted cocktails of Dos Hombres while playing chess in the pool.
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 discovered their business idea while enjoying sushi in New York City. The partners decided to find the highest quality they could find 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.
Aaron and his family spent quality time snorkeling, playing cornhole and indulging one of The Ani Private Resort’s infinity pools. Paul’s wife Lauren, of twelve years and even his one-year-old daughter, Story-Annabelle were included. The lavish Ani Resort has endless ocean views and even fourteen room private villas at a staggering 25k a night. With a chef, butler service and on-demand babysitting the resort had endless opportunity for fun.
