Kaśya (कश्य) refers to a type of intoxicating liquor, according to the Vāyupurāṇa 65.116, and is commonly found in literature dealing with the topics of dietetics and culinary art, also known as Pākaśāstra or Pākakalā.—Aṣṭāṅgasaṅgraha is of the opinion that intoxicating drinks were generally prepared from grapes, sugarcane, honey and rice.
