What is ‘Rum Pot’?
Rum Pot, which translates to “Rumtopf” in German, is a process of preserving various fruits by macerating them in rum and sugar, creating a deliciously boozy concoction. This delightful tradition is often passed down through generations, with each family adding different fruits throughout the year. By the time the holiday season arrives, the Rum Pot is ready to be used in festive cakes and desserts, infusing them with a unique, fruity, and spirited flavour.
At Sun Siyam Iru Fushi, this age-old practice has been combined with the resort’s luxurious tropical setting, making it a delightful and memorable experience for guests from around the world.
“Our annual ‘Rum Pot’ preparations have become a cherished tradition at Sun Siyam Iru Fushi,” said Abdulla Atham, Resort Manager at Sun Siyam Iru Fushi. “We take great pride in preserving this culinary heritage and infusing it with the flavours of the Maldives. It’s not just about the delicious fruit, rum, and sugar; it’s about creating cherished memories and celebrating the holiday season in a unique way.”
