Scunthorpe revellers queuing up to try world's hottest chilli vodka Naga
Hundreds of weekend revellers at Henry's nightclub in Scunthorpe are queuing up to sample the hottest chilli vodka in the world.
The Naga Chilli Vodka rates 100,000 on the Scoville scale – the international method of measuring the heat in a chilli – making it the most potent drink ever to be sold in North Lincolnshire.
It is so powerful that Henry's bar staff have been told to wear surgical gloves when serving and drinkers have to sign a disclaimer when paying £5 for a 25 millilitre shot, inclusive of a bottle of water.
Club manager Darren Harpham said that so far more than 300 revellers had signed the disclaimers.

Darren told The Fly: "The Naga vodka is torture in a glass so we have been astounded by the fortitude of the average Scunthonian.
"Initially, we bought one bottle for fun – a kind of dare shot, if you like.
"Now we are into our third case, with people dragging their unsuspecting friends into trying this devil's brew. It is that strong, we insist on customers signing a disclaimer before they pay their £5 – but thankfully there have been no casualties to date."
The vodka is made from Naga Jolokia chillies, which are twice the strength of Tabasco sauce.
Bartenders at Henry's are now working on a recipe for a "Bloody Scary" Cocktail, guaranteed to cure the mother of all hangovers.
Meanwhile, plans to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the opening of the Doncaster Road venue (then known as Henry Afrikas) over the weekend of November 9-11 are well in hand.
The original Henry Afrika statue has been located and is under restoration in order for it to play a major part in the celebrations.
A reunion of past employees and performers from 1987 onwards is also planned, along with a VIP Champagne reception for some lucky guests.
