Online retailers and bottlers Master of Malt have announced the launch of the world’s hottest Chili vodka, “100,000 Scovilles – Naga Chilli Vodka”, made by infusing vodka with the world’s hottest Chili – the Naga Jolokia.
This vodka is certainly not intended to be drunk neat, as it is incredibly fiery, so much each bottle comes with a very lengthy warning. It is named 100,000 Scovilles in reference to the units used to measure the heat of Chilies. Each Scoville unit denotes how many times the Chili must be diluted by its own mass of water until the heat is only just detectable. A Jalapeno, for example, has around 5,000, and so you can imagine just how potent Master of Malt’s new Chili vodka really is! The Naga Jolokia, used to make the vodka, can exceed 1,000,000 Scovilles, which is more than most Law Enforcement-grade Pepper Spray.
Master of Malt recommend 100,000 Scovilles – Naga Chilli Vodka be used sparingly to add spice to exotic cocktails, or even in cooking. They strongly urge you do not drink it neat, and definitely do not have it as a shot.
