Unfortunately the name has nothing to do with home made booze or a famous mime that Canadians of my generation remember from TV.



The name is actually a noble but poor attempt by early settlers to use the original Algonquin name for the peak "Pohqui Moosie" or in English “Broken and Smooth”. This name most likely refers to the smooth summit rocks and the large broken slabs on its SE side.



The peak sits near the one main pass thought the high peaks area and as such was one of the few that had a first nation name as it was an important to them as a crossroads and meeting place for trade between the differing tribes of the area.
