A Complete Horlicks?

Can some kind soul explain what it means to describe something as "a complete Horlicks"? I know Horlicks is a drink but what does it mean as an adjective? I found the reference in this news article with the following quote:

He admitted the whole "dodgy dossier" affair was "a complete Horlicks".
