Named after the Gaelic for “the Earth, the Sea”, is a nod to our location on the East Coast of Scotland where the land and sea meet.
We have crafted a gin that showcases the unique flavours and characteristics of our region. Incorporating sea buckthorn to add a vibrant fruity taste, milk thistle to round out the flavour profile perfectly with its delicate herbal notes, and sugar kelp to provide a coastal finish.

At the Old Course Hotel, we are passionate about creating exceptional food and drink experiences. We are also passionate about celebrating our community – and that’s why we partnered with local supplier Darnley’s Gin Distillery to create our own signature gin.
We attended Darnley’s Gin School where we learned from the experts the art of distillation and what goes into creating great tasting gin – from selecting our ingredients to making sure they’re sourced ethically and sustainably.

With Fife on our doorstep, we make the most of everything the land and sea have to offer.
Once we felt confident in our ability to create our own unique blend capturing the characteristics of our region, we selected ingredients based on their flavour profiles and how they complement each other.
From sugar kelp in the East Neuk to herbs grown in Darnley’s own gin garden, Fearann Mar is a love letter to the East Coast of Scotland.

Here at the Old Course Hotel, we are committed to doing what we can to help the environment and partnering with Darnley’s Gin allowed us to package Fearann Mar using their recyclable pouches.
The manufacturing process for Darnley’s bottles requires extremely high temperatures to heat the furnace, and by replacing a quantity of these with recyclable pouches Darnley’s can save on further emissions.
The gin pouch weighs about 50% of a 70cl bottle and contains the same amount of gin, making them substantially lighter to transport than glass bottles, using less energy to ship.
Once your gin pouch is empty, place the cap back on the pouch to ensure no leaking gin, and send back via Freepost to Darnley’s HQ to recycle.
