The latest addition to the flavoured vodka craze is a chili vodka that will warm you from the inside out.
Naga Chilli Vodka is infused with one of the hottest chili peppers on the planet. It rates 100000 on the Scoville scale – the international method of measuring the heat in a chili.
The Naga Jolokia chilli is dangerously hot and can cause serious damage if ingested raw. This however didn’t stop a spirits company from mixing 18 kilograms of the fiery peppers with vodka, and creating one of the hottest drinks known to man.
Most people think Jalapeno peppers are hot, but they’re rated at just 5,000 Scoville units, so you can imagine how hot naga Chilli Vodka is. In fact retailers like Master of Malt have posted a health warning that goes like this:
By purchasing this bottle, you agree that:
1) I have been warned and fully understand that this product contains extreme heat and should be used and handled responsibly.
2) I use this product entirely at my own risk and I understand the potential danger if used or handled irresponsibly. If I give this product as a gift I will make the recipient aware of the potential danger if used or handled irresponsibly.
Here a video of some idiots that tried the stuff.
