Tokay was a heavy, golden-coloured Hungarian wine. It was served at The Trout Inn.[1] Dr Carne poisoned a carafe of 1898 Tokay destined for Lord Asriel, but thanks to Lyra Belacqua, he did not drink it.[2]

Carlo Boreal offered Tokay to Marisa Coulter when she visited him at Limefield House in Will's world.[3] It is also possible that Mrs Coulter used Tokay to mask the poison she used to kill Lord Boreal when they were camping in the World of Cittàgazze.[4] Gunnar Hallgrimsson had a case of Tokay sent to him from Buda-Pesth every year and offered some to Coram van Texel when they met at the University of Uppsala.[5]

Behind the scenes[edit | edit source]

  • Tokay is probably based on the Hungarian wine Tokaji.
