Karkadé: Maturing Like Fine Wine Cleopatra Style

Act IV, Scene III of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar opens with preparations for a royal banquet. Cleopatra is anxious to be the first to drink from the new, beautiful golden goblets. Only the finest of wines (or will it be Karkadé?) will be served. She is doing the necessary work to take care of her beauty, health and longevity.

The author Lucan (born 39 C.E) wrote in Pharsalia; Dramatic Episodes of the Civil Wars about Caesar and Cleopatra wine. Lucan makes clear that authentic superior Roman wine was preferred to the local vintage: “no juice of Mareot grape But noble vintage of Falernian growth Which in few years in Meroe’s vats had foamed, (For such the clime) to ripeness.”

The ancient Egyptians were known for their love of wine, but it is said that they also brewed a healing drink called Karkadé. This drink became so popular in Cleopatra’s court that when she took over as ruler after Rome left Egypt alone again, one mission was to revive this lost tradition and bring back what had once been thriving before Roman rule came around.
