The chaps at Master of Malt have a confession to make. They may have poisoned Phillip Schofield.

100,000 Scovilles - Naga Chilli Vodka

We would like to apologise unreservedly for poisoning you live on national television.

Mr Schofield was unfortunate enough to try a shot of the 100,000 Scovilles Naga Chilli Vodka live on national television, as part of a chilli-themed tasting event on ITV’s This Morning, broadcast on Wednesday, February 22.

This is a truly fearsome drink, sold – with all due safety warnings – for £31.95:

The results of Mr. Schofield’s ill-advised sampling were not pretty, and are available on YouTube here:

Of course, Master of Malt sells an enormous range of very tasty drinks indeed, so by way of apology they have written to Mr. Schofield and offered to send him a nice bottle of 40 year old Speyside.

If vodka drinkers fancy testing their mettle against Phillip Schofield, they can purchase a bottle, but must consider themselves forewarned.

The letter reads:

"Dear Mr. Schofield,

We would like to apologise unreservedly for poisoning you live on national television. We were mortified to discover you actually drank our 100,000 Scovilles - Naga Chilli Vodka; we did our best to discourage people from ever doing so, but alas, it seems to no avail.

However, we were most impressed by your fortitude in hiding the gut-wrenching agony you must have experienced – you are indeed made of stern stuff.

In recognition of your sterling performance, we would like to introduce you to one of our less malodourous drinks, and here present you with a bottle of our 40 Year Old Speyside Single Malt.

We hope you enjoy it more than the vodka.

Yours sincerely,

The Chaps at Master of Malt

PS. We hope the “Ring of Fire” cools off."
