Sad to hear of the passing of Brig Kapil Mohan -- and it does unreported in the news media! He is the man who ran Mohan Meakin and the face beind the Old Monk rum brand that is global. Remember meeting him for a family feud story. This is the stuff of business history.— Madhavan Narayanan (@madversity) January 8, 2018
Never been a Rum drinker but I know, to people who drink it, Old Monk is not a Rum. It is an institution. Or an emotion. R.I.P Kapil Mohan. You spread joy like few others could - across generations. ✨— Indrani Ray (@IndraniRay) January 9, 2018
