Scottish whisky distiller, writer, philanthropist, landowner and politician.
He was a founding partner in Mackie & Co, which was set up to market Lagavulin and other whiskies in London. In 1890 the two businesses amalgamated as Mackie & Co (Distillers) and began to blend White Horse. In 1895 Mackie's became a limited company and Peter Mackie became chairman, a post he held until his death in 1924.
Mackie travelled and wrote extensively on politics. In 1918 he made a gift of pedigree cattle to Rhodesia to encourage ranching and cattle breeding. He also financed the Mackie Anthropological Expedition to Uganda. He was also a major landowner (owning 12,000 acres in Argyllshire), a Justice of the Peace for Argyllshire, Ayrshire and Lanarkshire, and an active member of the Scottish Unionist Association, serving as chairman from 1922.
He was awarded a baronetcy (Sir Peter Mackie) in 1920.
