The World's Hottest Vodka Will Make You Cry, Curse, and Get Sick

The 100,000 Scovilles Naga Chilli Vodka might just kill you


We'll readily admit that when we first saw this video, we thought it was a joke. But after some research, and watching the brave souls who gave this chile pepper vodka a swig, we believe it to be true: the 100,000 Scovilles Naga Chilli Vodka is the hottest vodka in the world. 

The vodka is infused with the Naga Jolokia chile, one of the hottest chiles known to man, with a Scoville rating that has been measured at over 1,000,000 units (jalapeños top out at around 5,000). (The Daily Mail reports that it's stronger than pepper sprays sold in stores: imagine taking a shot of that liquid fire.) Foodiggity found a video where several Firebox employees took it for a spin — and immediately regretted it.

The vodka, said to have the same hotness as a habenero chile (it's thankfully milder than the Naga Jolokia, since it's diluted by the actual alcohol), has elicited some classic reactions, including one burly dude claiming, "It feels like it's in my tears!" We'll choose to hold on to our lunch today, thanks. 

If you're feeling bold, the 100,000 Scoville vodka is on sale for $63 on Firebox. Though we love a weird-flavored vodka like the rest of them, we're going to have to pass on this one.
