The Hornigold Syrup was created to emphasize the Tiki-features of the Hurdy Gurdy and tributed to Captain Hornigold. Captain Benjamin Hornigold (1680–1719) was an English pirate operating during the tail end of the Golden age of Piracy. The ingredients of Thalys Busman’s Hornigold Syrup put forward an intriguing flavor with clear reminiscences of some of the better-known Tiki-cocktails.
