Distillery "White Horse" was founded in 1861 by James Logan Mackie. Until 1924 it was known as Mackie and Co. Distillery became successful because of his "second head" and the driving force, entrepreneur Peter Mackie, the stories that "one-third was a genius, one-third was eccentric, another megalomaniac." It was he who in 1890 founded and registered whiskey "White Horse", named after the famous Edinburgh inn, which in turn was named after the white horse breed horse Palfrey, owned by Mary Queen of Scots, who come from the nearby Palace of Holyroodhouse. In 1915, Peter Mackie bought the plant in Speyside Craigellachie, whose temples joined the blend "White Horse". When Peter died in 1924, his whiskey was one of the main blended whiskey in the world and among the top five. In 1927, the distillery became part of The Distillers Compagny Limited. Today whiskey under the brand name "White Horse" is exported in almost 200 countries around the world.
