CEO Michael Paluzzi and his son, Lorenzo, opened Falls Church Distillers to follow a heritage passion. Michael grew up in the northeast in a small town, predominantly populated by Italian immigrants. Their customs not only included great food and art, but also the making of excellent wine and liquors. Beyond their ethnic roots, Michael Paluzzi’s family has a history of retail experience and involvement in the United States Air Force (a family tradition Michael’s youngest son Christian is currently continuing.) After Michael’s own tour in the USAF, he became educated in computer communications. These skills, combined with his son Lorenzo’s degree in chemistry, made the progression to creating spirits feel like common sense. Michael and Lorenzo Paluzzi hope you will enjoy the Falls Church Distillery and all the spirits they have to offer. They promise not to disappoint.
