Taylor Hansen
Steward of The Brand, Chicago
Taylor Hansen

Taylor’s childhood was not unlike any other; sledding in Finland, sailing on Lake Michigan, braving high school in the Netherlands and Germany. Earning BA in Advertising from Michigan State University, he moved to The Windy City to pursue a life in campaign design. A proud nerd in every sense of the word, working at a distillery granted an epiphany: chemistry was delicious. Armed with a peculiar amalgam of experience and a flask of whiskey, he found his calling with the WhistlePig family, preparing Chicago for the impending rye-pocalypse.
