Naga Chilli Vodka is made by fermenting litres of vodka with 18kg of the legendary Naga Jokolia pepper for several weeks. The resulting golden hued infusion rates 100,000 Scoville units (for comparison purposes, the jalapeño pepper rates about 5000 on the same scale).

The nuclear-grade piquant infusion comes with the following health warning:
