I am actually in the UK - I have checked out the MOHAWK website, and I cannot see that they have a UK distributor unfortunately
It was worth a try...

Welcome aboard.
I have used the Minwax Classic Gray, and sure enough, the project turned out to be gray.

I can see where that would be OK for a lot of people, but not for me, especially at that price. I don't make mass pieces of stuff, that will be stained the same color. I just do small pieces, or one off, and it is much more economical for me to mix my own. I start with small amounts, often just a drop at a time, keeping record of what I am doing just in case I would need to duplicate the color later. Then when I get my color of the moment, might only have 2-3 spoonfuls, so if it doesn't work out, can dump it with minimal loss. And with a record of how much of each color, I can dupe it later - but usually just mix up a new batch, mostly because I lost the records.
Besides, a bit of difference in the color means it's an original. Hehehe And, it's just more fun doing it myself.
