Etymology

Middle English bousen (verb) and bouse (noun), and connected with Dutch buizen and German bousen. (Reference: Brewer's Dictionary of Phrase and Fable, ISBN 0304935700.)

A derivation from U.S. distiller E. C. Booz is false; the term in various forms long pre-dates his entry into the manufacture of booze.
