But what exactly is ‘Rum Pot’? Translated as ‘Rumtopf’ in German, it’s a method of preserving various fruits by macerating them in rum and sugar, resulting in a deliciously boozy concoction. This delightful tradition often spans generations, with each family adding different fruits throughout the year. By the time the holiday season arrives, the Rum Pot is ready to impart its unique, fruity, and spirited flavor to festive cakes and desserts.

At Sun Siyam Iru Fushi, this centuries-old practice has been seamlessly woven into the resort’s luxurious tropical setting, creating a delightful and unforgettable experience for guests from around the world.
