Story

A composition of science and nature.
Handcrafted in benburb northern ireland

A COMPOSITION OF SCIENCE & NATURE


BY USING OUR KNOWLEDGE OF FLAVOUR MOLECULES, EACH BOTANICAL IS DISTILLED IN A BESPOKE PROCESS THAT RETAINS FLAVOURS OFTEN LOST DURING TRADITIONAL DISTILLATION. SCIENCE TURNS TO ART AS THE VARIOUS FLAVOURS ARE CAREFULLY BALANCED TO MAKE A SERIES OF UNIQUE COMPOSITIONS.

SYMPHONIA IS A RANGE OF HANDCRAFTED SPIRITS, WHERE EACH SYMPHONY WILL CHARM AND FASCINATE, INSPIRE AND EXHILARATE.

HANDMADE IN NORTHERN IRELAND


LOCATED IN BENBURB,
THE WOODLAB DISTILLERY COMBINES SELECTED NATURAL INGREDIENTS AND SCIENTIFIC PROCESSES TO CREATE THE FINEST BOTANICAL SPIRITS THAT SHOWCASE THE IRISH COUNTRYSIDE.
