Tokay was a heavy, golden-coloured Hungarian wine. It was served at The Trout Inn. Dr Carne poisoned a carafe of 1898 Tokay destined for Lord Asriel, but thanks to Lyra Belacqua, he did not drink it.
Carlo Boreal offered Tokay to Marisa Coulter when she visited him at Limefield House in Will's world. 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. 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.
