The Woodlab Distillery, home of award winning Symphonia Spirits is based in the charming village of Moy, Co. Tyrone. Founded back in 2016, Ric Dyer produced a range of spirits and began trading these in June 2018. Ric has a background in chemistry and spent nearly thirty years in the pharmaceutical industry discovering new medicines, until he decided to do something different and apply his skills and knowledge to his other passion, food and drink.

Symphonia Spirits are a result of an innovative scientific distillation method used to maximise the extraction of selected natural ingredients and have created the finest botanical spirits showcasing the Irish countryside. The Symphonia spirit range is named after this method of production, where a series of flavour notes are produced by this bespoke distillation of botanicals, and these notes are then composed into a series of symphonies.

Wherever possible, Ric grows his ingredients as close to the distillery as possible to really capture the taste of this region, for example, the Apple Gin is made from Armagh Bramley (PGI) apples. This gin making process is also incredibly energy efficient, and uses only 2% of the energy compared to the traditional copper pot method. For the Apple Rum, Ric took a fantastic white rum from the Caribbean and infused it with a local Irish botanical which gives a spicy nutmeg taste, then redistilled with local Armagh Jonogold apples. The finished liquid is something special and truly unique. Serve with lemonade and a wedge of pink grapefruit for a refreshing summer drink.

In August 2020, Woodlab Distillery opened the doors of its new purpose built distillery in Moy where the team welome visitors to behind the scene tours. A new gin school is on schedule to open in summer 2021, where visitors can create their very own gin, taste the Symphonia range of spirits and learn about the history of gin in a fun & factual setting.
