Feeling hot, hot, hot… it’s the Brick Lane Burner.
Vibe Bar creates Record for World’s Hottest Cocktail:
This drink is so dangerous; it comes with a medical disclaimer
The Vibe Bar – has worked with mixologists, chemists and chilli horticulturalists to create the world’s spiciest ever cocktail, setting a new Guinness World Record in the process. This isn’t merely the spiciest cocktail ever made, but when tested by Warwick
University, it came in at 676,979 Scoville Heat Units, making it the spiciest commercially available drink ever – more than 270 times hotter than Tabasco sauce and over 20 times as hot as your standard Vindaloo.
The ‘Brick Lane Burner’ which is available from the main bar for £15.50 as part of a new, spice themed cocktail range requires brave punters to don a pair of goggles and sign a medical disclaimer before being allowed to drink it. Thoughtfully, Vibe will also provide a complimentary Mango Lassi cooler to anyone daring enough to try it.
Made with ingredients sourced from Peter Seymour, chilli horticulturalist and owner of Brighton based retailer – Chilli Pepper Pete, the drink uses 12,000,000 SHU ‘Killer, Killer’ extract which is more than eight times hotter than the hottest chilli in the world. It’s so potent that those who handle it must wear protective gloves.
