Naga Chilli Vodka - V. Spicy Spiciest Vodka in the World

[28/02/12] 

Naga Chilli Vodka has just been crowned the spiciest vodka in the world, measuring 100,000 on the Scoville scale, the official measurement of heat. To put that in perspective, Tabasco offers 2,500-5,000 Scovilles, while the volcanic vodka delivers the same spiciness as a Habanero chilli. If you’re a guy who prides yourself on the curry you can handle – ordering your Vindaloo loudly enough for everyone to hear – this is the spirit for you.

It makes the foundations for an explosive Bloody Mary as well as a penalty vodka shot you really don’t want to drink (sorry, consume) in Ring of Fire. Priced at GBP31.95 and produced by Master of Malt, it’ll unfortunately cost you another GBP33.95 to get a bottle shipped to Hong Kong because the world’s a bit upside down at the moment. The good news is it’s not like you’re going to polish one off in a single sitting.

We can’t imagine what it would do to your innards – make sure you put some toilet roll in the fridge as a precaution – but it’s a bottle of vodka that will draw a lot of intrigue and admiration for its drinkers. It measures 40% alc.vol and apparently makes your eyes water before you’ve even sipped it. Which sounds like a challenge to us.

Scolding Scovilles.
