After serving in the Marine Corps, including two tours of duty to Iraq, Ellison owner Aaron Hanson was honorably discharged from active duty. He then started pursing an engineering degree at Lansing Community College and transferred to a private university in Metro-Detroit.  While working as an Application Engineer and finishing his Mechanical Engineering degree, Aaron was honored as the first US employee selected Executive Development programmer at MAHLE Engine Components.  This position had him traveling abroad to Brazil where he spent most of his time working as an Automotive Engineer, and spending weekends at Vilela Cachaça learning the basics of distilling.  After Brazil, he moved to Northampton, UK and travelled back and forth to Scotland almost every weekend; visiting and learning more about Scotch distilling. It was at this point that he started the initial business plan for Ellison as a craft distillery.  After reaching out to a high school friend whom had already been established in beer sales, they decided to open Ellison Brewery and Spirits as a craft brewery and distillery.  After a busy four years of constant expansion and production, Aaron took advantage of a great opportunity in opening the Indianapolis facility. He did all of this while simultaneously pursuing other facilities in Michigan in hopes of creating an inclusive, electrifying environment for his clientele to experience the best of the craft world. 

Aaron is currently married to German-born Sabine and they have two young children, Fiona and Lukas.
