No matter how tough you think you are when it comes to spicy food, chances are you will look at this and simply say, “Na, fam. Not tryin’ to die today.” Yeah, it’s that hot.
The ‘Hot Enough’ Vodka Co. came out with the hottest alcohol in the world back in 2012, known as the Naga Chilli Vodka. The vodka is infused with a chili pepper called the Naga Jolokia, or more commonly referred to as the “ghost chili.” According to the spice fiends over at Chilli Wizards, the Naga Jolokia pepper clocks in at an insanely high number on the Scoville scale, ranging anywhere from 800,000 to 1,000,000.
In case you don’t know, the Scoville scale is the scale used to determine how hot or spicy something is. For example, Tabasco Original Hot Sauce would be around 3,750 Scovilles, while Frank’s Original Hot Sauce comes in at a measly 500 Scovilles.
The Naga Chilli Vodka, now that you have a general idea of where things would be located on the scale, practically breathes fire with a whopping 100,000 on the Scoville scale. But wait, there’s more…
The original version with 100,000 was released in 2012, however they’ve amped it up since then, creating a bottle that pushes 250,000 and the hottest one of all, clocking in at an insane 500,000 SCOVILLES! One chili-loving expert over at Masters of Malt was quoted saying, “What’s that? No, I’m not crying…my teeth feel weird. Are my lips swelling? Get that stuff out of my sight.”
The 500,000 Scovilles bottle of Naga Chili Vodka is nearly as strong as the weakest pepper spray on the market, which is still ridiculously painful. Still think you can handle it? Yeah, everyone does.
If you order a bottle from the Masters of Malt and have an interesting, sad or crazy story to go along with it, let me know! Also, don’t be a hero.
