Family Story

Carlos Pellas’ vision for Mukul is a testament to love of family and a rich, 135-year history rooted in Nicaragua. Back in 1875, then 25-year-old Francisco Alfredo Pellas Canessa first arrived to run the family business, Caribbean Pacific Transit Co. That original enterprise has since blossomed into 16 companies in more than a dozen countries, now employing more than 18,000 people.

Today, Don Carlos Pellas survives as the patriarch of Mukul and the standard bearer of the Pellas vision. Named as one of the 50 most influential people in Latin America, Don Carlos also oversees the world-class Vivian Pellas Hospital and the award-winning Flor de Caña rum distillery – which has won more than 130 awards at prestigious international tasting competitions.

Mukul now stands as the crown jewel of the Pellas family legacy. It’s a place where the love of togetherness, family and this special land is shared with new friends from around the world. Friends like you.
