Moulin Inn & Brewery, Pitlochry, Perthshire, PH16 5EW
Phone: (0) 1796 472 196
Hotelier Chris Tomlinson established the brewery at the Moulin Hotel in Pitlochry in the summer of 1995 in part to supplement the celebration of three hundred years of operation of the hotel. Brewing is undertaken by Alistair Dickson.
The present five barrel brewing plant is housed in what were originally a coach house and stable buildings attached to the hotel. Since its initial establishment the brewery has purchased additional fermentation tanks for added capacity but the average brew session remains at five barrels. The brewery's annual output is about 500 barrels per year. The head brewer is Latvian born Martins Rakauskas.
All of Moulin's products are produced in cask format and served in the Moulin Hotel and at the Bothy Bar in Blair Atholl which is also owned by Chris. One product, Ale of Atholl, is available in bottle-conditioned format.
