We aim to create our first ice cream parlour and coffee shop in the heart of Aberdeen. Mackie's flagship parlour will be in the new Marischal Square development, in a 70 cover unit where we will create a new selection of up to thirty flavours of ice cream accompanied by our melted hot chocolate, artisan coffee and some other fresh local foods. We are proud of our North East heritage and we will work hard to make this a real positive addition to the centre of Aberdeen.
We’ve been playing country music to our dairy cows – see our video about the experiment to see if it will affect their milk yield. The idea began when we agreed to be a sponsor to the North East's first Doricana Festival - coming up in Stonehaven on 8th October and everyone is now getting in the moo-d at the farm. Headliner and Singer/songwriter Colin Clyne gave a live performance to kick off the experiment with his Americana country music.
We are delighted to have teamed up again this year with VisitScotland to help promote #ScotSpirit and our home area of Aberdeenshire. Look out for our 1 litre Traditional tubs showing the iconic Dunnottar Castle near Stonehaven – the lucky winner will scoop a two-night B&B family break at Meldrum House Hotel...
