World’s Hottest Chilli Vodka Launched
Online drinks retailer Master of Malt has launched what it claims to be the world’s hottest chilli vodka.
Made by infusing vodka with Naga Jolokia – the hottest chilli on the planet – 100,000 Scovilles Naga Chilli Vodka is so fiery it comes with a heath warning.
This vodka, named after the units used to measure the heat of chillies, is not intended to be drunk neat.
Each Scoville unit denotes how many times the chilli must be diluted by its own mass of water until the heat is only just detectable.
A Jalapeno has around 5,000 Scovilles. The Naga Jolokia, used to make the vodka, can exceed 1,000,000 Scovilles, which is more than most police grade pepper spray.
The retailer recommends the vodka be used sparingly to add spice to exotic cocktails, or even in cooking. It strongly advises against having the vodka as a shot.
