- "Bartender. Drink-keeper. Peddler of strange liqueurs! Another, please."
- ―Sinjir Rath Velus, asking Pok for another sashin-leaf mead
Sashin-leaf mead was a sweet-tasting type of mead that was consumable by humans. The beverage was gold-colored, and could be made from biological sugars. Sashin-leaf mead's alcoholic qualities could cause intoxication after consuming several glasses.
In 4 ABY, the former Imperial loyalty officer Sinjir Rath Velus consumed several glasses of sashin-leaf mead while visiting the cantina Pok's Place in the Outer Rim planet Akiva's capital city of Myrra. He enjoyed the beverage, and felt it tasted like a mixture of jybbuk-fruit and oi-oi berries. Velus, intoxicated from consuming the mead, clamored for the establishment's bartender Pok to bring him another glass of it.
Behind the scenes
Notes and references
- "The Wine in Dreams"—Canto Bight establishes that meads are made from biological sugars, meaning that sashin-leaf mead, a beverage that Aftermath classifies as a mead, must also be made from biological sugars.
- Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary dates the reunion of Norra Wexley and Temmin Wexley on Akiva—which occurs during the rebellion on Akiva, according to Aftermath—to thirty years before the Hosnian Cataclysm, which Star Wars: Galactic Atlas dates to 34 ABY. The appearance of sashin-leaf mead takes place at the beginning of Akiva's rebellion, and can therefore be placed in 4 ABY.
