The new Naga Chilli Vodka is so hot that it comes with a special health warning. Its launch comes just months after the company released the 100,000 Scovilles Naga Chilli Vodka.
The new version is 2.5 times hotter, the Daily Mail reported. The chilli used in the vodka is the Naga Jolokia, which is known to be one of the hottest chillis, and rates higher on the Scoville scale than most law-enforcement grade pepper sprays.
A Jalapeno has an estimated 5,000 Scovilles. The Naga Jolokia can exceed 1,000,000 Scovilles.
The drink is made by fermenting litres of vodka with 18kg of the fiery peppers.
The resulting concoction is left for several weeks to infuse. Once the vodka has turned a dark caramel colour, the infusion is complete and the vodka can be bottled.
The drink is recommended as a mixer, with expert mixologists suggesting it can be used in a classic Bloody Mary for a drink with extra kick.
The 250,000 Scovilles – Naga Chilli Vodka will be available from 2 October atwww.masterofmalt.com and costs 31.95 pounds for 50cl. -NPN
