Ok not all of Al Conpone illegal booze came out of Canada, What was his Wyoming Whiskey called… Hint same as the Town where it was made ( thought from all over that area) .
I think you threw everyone off when you called the alcohol in question whiskey. The info. I found calls it wine. Unless you have different info. than me.

1887 a guy by the name of Hamilton was hunting and got lost South of Jackson Hole. The search party agreed that if they found Hamilton, they would light a fire on top of Signal Mountain to let them know he was found. Signal Mountain has a clear view of the area Hamilton was hunting in. He was found drowned, but when they found his horse, it had an antelope strapped to it. Signal mountain is located just South of Jackson Lake.
