The Paluzzi family founded Falls Church Distillers with the goal of honoring their heritage
by producing premium craft spirits that appeal to the senses:
vista, odore, gusto!
Falls Church Distillers is an award-winning distillery located in the Virginia suburbs just outside of the Nation’s Capital. As a uniquely licensed distillery, you are invited to stay awhile, and enjoy some of our partner craft brews, seasonally varied libations, and all in the craft environment that is a small batch distillery.
The Core Family team...
My oldest son, Lorenzo, and I opened Falls Church Distillers to follow a heritage passion. I grew up in the NorthEast part of the Country in a small town that was predominately populated by Italian immigrants whose customs not only include great food and art, but also the making of wine and liquors.
Beyond the ethnic roots, I also had a family exposure to the retail environment and later, after a tour in the USAF (a family service tradition that I am proud to say my youngest son SGT Christian Paluzzi is currently continuing) where I was educated in computer communications, I applied those combined experiences and developed skills into a 35-year successful sales and management career. Lorenzo has focused his education in chemistry.
Lorenzo and I have taken my lifetime of acquired business skills and experiences, added in Lorenzo’s chemistry knowledge, and applied them to the building of a craft spirits manufacturer.
This progression to making uniquely smooth-tasting spirits is a natural and common sense one if you consider a maturing and more discerning taste, market growth bell curve, and the opportunity to enter a burgeoning market opportunity at an amazing inflection point.
