Alcohol, also known as booze[2] or hooch,[3] was a substance that had mind-altering effects on certain organic species. Various type of beverages consumed by sentients such as ales,[4] liquors, and wines contained alcohol.[5]

Types of alcohol[]

Alcoholic drinks could be divided into several categories: wines were made by fermenting fruit or other vegetation with a rising agent, meads were made by fermenting biological sugars, beers were brewed from grains, and liquors were made from various pressed, fermented, and blended ingredients.[6]


Excessive alcohol consumption caused temporary intoxication (or "drunkenness"), typically followed by unpleasant aftereffects.[7] One danger of intoxication was impaired judgement: While gambling in the Canto Casino, the alien Dobbu Scay became inebriated[8] and mistook the astromech droid BB-8 as a slot machine. The droid ended up accumulating many of Scay's Cantocoins.[9] During a mission to the Coruscant underworld, Jedi Ahsoka Tano and Plo Koon went into a cantina to find information on bounty hunter Aurra Sing, due to people being more likely to reveal information while intoxicated.[10] Although tolerance for alcohol varied between individuals, it was possible to train one's body to strengthen its resistance.[5]

Depending on its strength, an alcoholic drink could impart a burning impression in the mouth and digestive system.[3]
