Maya Mythology

ACAN

Maya Alcohol God

Also known as Akan

God of Intoxicating Beverages

ACAN is responsible for the honey and bark intoxicating drink known as ‘Balché’. This cocktail was – and is – very popular among the Maya. Although we do not recommend you to take it in the ancient way – warriors would traditionally enjoy a Balché enema before battle. Probably not the intoxicating experience most people are looking for.

ACAN is a very boisterous God who loves to make a fool of himself while under the influence. His name means ‘groan’ or ‘bellow’ and by all accounts he does a lot of groaning — particularly during the morning after.

Unconfirmed reports claim that he’s best friends with CACOCH. Drinking buddies?
