One of the first microbreweries in Scotland
Moulin was one of the first microbreweries in Scotland , now there are in excess of 10; it is also a very popular concept in the United States. The first two brews, A & B, were tried out in the pub at 50p per pint, very successful they were too, the darker one was chosen, to be served alongside our regular ales like Marstons Pedigree, Tetleys and Old Speckled Hen. A competition for a name was started and the winner won a bottle of whisky, for Ale of Atholl - simply taking the 'V' out of Vale of Atholl, the local area. Moulin Micro Brewery experimented with a second brew, lightening the strength and colour of ingredients, producing it at the time they were making the Mel Gibson film, Braveheart. Since we named the beer the film was guaranteed success!!
