Reproduction glass bottles sit near a still at George Washington's Gristmill at the Mount Vernon Estate, before a ceremony to lay a cornerstone at the site of the soon-to-be reconstructed George Washington's Distillery and Museum.  The cornerstone is a sandstone block from the original 1793 U.S. Capitol and from the same vein of sandstone which Washington used to build his first distillery in 1797.
