The Scoville Scale of Chili Peppers List from Hottest to Mildest: The Scoville unit was named for Wilbur Scoville in 1912. At the time, he worked for a pharmaceutical company named Parke-Davis where he developed a test called the "Scoville Organoleptic Test" which is used to measure a chili pepper's heat.
Chilli - a traditional method to imply greater alcohol strength was the addition of chillies to a spirit - thereby creating the 'fire-water' flavour that some demand from their 'kill-devil' tipple. When in season we use organic chillies from the far North of New Zealand to achieve this flavour character.
