STEEL RIVER – “Club Tropicana” Edition My third juniper inspired love song, this one to…Ibiza and The 80s!, I first landed there in 1988 on my first summer holiday with my pals. I was there for the second Summer of Love in 89 too. It was while there that someone told me about mythical Pikes Hotel. […]
Steel River Gins
…..currently have three editions. The Stainsby Girl Edition and the El Clasico Edition and The Club Tropicana Edition.
They are a little bit me, a little bit you, a little bit of what I’ve learnt on my gin travels, a touch of Teesside boldness, and a fair bit of Andalucian flair.
They are unique, they are easy drinking and very very moreish. They have been a long time coming too. Alot of graft, a fair bit of craft, a hint of guile, and alot of effort, love, tears and sleepless nights have gone into getting these gins out there.
But, they are my creation. And mine only. No teams, no designers, no backers, no partners. Just me, for good or for bad. And now it’s time for me to hand them over and let them go out and make a name for themselves.
Personally, I think they’re fecking gorgeous!
I hope you do too.
The First Ever Steel River Gin!
STEEL RIVER GIN – Premium-Flavoured.
Stainsby Girl. Limited Edition.
I dont think you will have seen a bottle like this, a design like this and tasted a gin like this.
STEEL RIVER is a PREMIUM-FLAVOURED Gin. It is not a mass made, generic, samey, bland gin.
The “Stainsby Girl” Edition is my take on the London Dry style, but infused with Prickly Pear Cactus fruit (found all around my country home near Granada in Spain), and also coloured with the magic Butterfly Pea flower, which is used in Eastern medicine to treat women’s ailing libido!
( So……just saying ladies! )
There isn’t another gin in the world with Prickly Pear Cactus fruit as the main flavour.
It is THE summer G&T, fresh, bursting with watermelon, pink grapefruit and fig aromas, and kept in line by a strong juniper backbone.
Very very easy drinking but a complete one-off!
Steel River Gins are unique.....
But don’t just take my word for it….
Another amazing night!!! Tj is amazeballs deserves a great bonus 😘😘😍 xx

I can’t believe I’ve waited so long to buy a bottle of this gin! After hearing good things about it, I eventually ordered a Stainsby Girl. Amazing service from Jay, I’m so glad I called at home just as he was at my door! As if the bottle, flask, hand written note & booklet aren’t special enough, the gin itself is truly amazingly delicious! (And it’s fair to say, I’ve tried a fair few ☺️) It is definitely up there as a favourite... in fact, it’s my new favourite! I will be ordering the El Clasico very soon!! 😍 Thanks for a great, local, fabulous gin Jay!! 👍🏻
11:05 04 May 19
Superb product and customer service.The little personal touches like the hand written letter and the mini hip flask are pure class.A quality product with a unique and personal quality, I can't recommend them enough.
19:22 03 May 19
Fabulous tasting gin !! Would highly recommend,,, xx
16:57 27 Apr 19
Ordered late Friday night and it was hand delivered on Saturday afternoon. What a fab service! Everything about the gin including packaging is excellent. It seems a shame to drink the shimmery version because it’s so pretty but I have to say it tastes absolutely lush! One of, if not THE best tasting gin I’ve ever tried and I have tried well over 40 brands. This definitely won’t be my last order!!
19:19 14 Apr 19
Customer service is amazing, flavours are amazing! I absolutely love el Clasico, the vibrant red colour doesn’t dilute with the addition of a mixer! It’s a full bodied fruity flavour that makes you want more! Stainsby Girl is delicious too and I cannot wait for the new addition to the gang! 😍
15:00 22 Mar 19
ordered this for my husband for our 11th anniversary, as usual i'd left it till the last minute but i explained the situation. well it was hand delivered, the night before our anniversary with a lovely little personalised note from jay. so impressed with the amazing service, 👏👏👏just hope the hubby shares the stainsby😊
11:05 22 Mar 19
Great service and lovely product even converted the Welsh man in the house to some proper Teesside gin.
18:17 21 Mar 19
Just received a bottle of pomegranate and pistachio gin for my birthday from my lovely lady, along with a wee hip flask on a chain and a bottle of matched tonic. Just gorgeous! 😍would definitely recommend...

17:57 15 Mar 19
Excellent service, hand delivered less than 24 hours after ordering, my sister loved it as her birthday present, I just need one myself now! Such lovely touches hopefully that won’t change as you don’t get such personal touches & service with Amazon etc 😂. Thanks Jay will definitely be ordering again soon! Xx
20:02 10 Mar 19
I received my first ever bottle of Steel River gin 'Stainsby girl' for my 40th birthday from a very good friend. Living on Teeside it seemed an appropriate present. The hand written personalised note from Jay shows how much he values every single customer.The gin is exquisite, beautifully presented and a joy to show.thank you very much for bringing this into my life!!
17:14 10 Mar 19
Just received this and couldn't wait to try it. El Clasico is a true marvel. This clever man has managed to create an absolute winner
18:09 08 Mar 19
beautiful gin presented in a gorgeous bottle and hand-delivered. can't get better than that.
09:04 04 Mar 19
... Very proud of my Northern roots, very proud to be a Stainsby Girl (as per Chris Rea's song)... Very proud to be the owner of a bottle of Stainsby Girl Limited Edition Gin (the purple shimmer is very girlie) and even happier to be drinking it!! Chin chin... 😊 It's absolutely lush!
01:22 03 Mar 19
Received my Pomegranate and pistachio gin today with a little hip flask and two tonics Very impressed Love the taste Will be buying again can definitely recommend
19:01 25 Feb 19
wow, got it as a Christmas gift from my Aunt, it's amazing 👍
20:30 22 Feb 19
I was extremely spoilt for my 40th and received a bottle of each steel river gins. Obviously I had to try them both - gorgeous. Now need to keep trying them with different tonics- for research purposes 🤣
17:03 22 Feb 19
Gorgeous taste. Locally brewed.
19:29 21 Feb 19
First: It tastes wonderfulSecond: It's packaged beautifullyThird: It's delivered promptlyLast but not least: The order confirmation email from Jay is a keeper!!
15:35 20 Feb 19
I purchased Stainsby girl a week ago. The correspondence made me smile. the delivery was quick and well packaged, the bottle is beautiful, the colour is beautiful, the shimmer is evern more beautiful. so proof is in the tasting . Straight its so smooth its gorgeous very unusual flavor hints of melon and sweetness ive not had before in Gin. With tonic like magic it turns a stunning sparkly violet and tastes incredible . This is going to be a firm favorite of mine from now on. Everything about this gin is great i cant say anything better. I tried the sample of the regular Red Steel River in the hip flask , again strong unusual sweet flavour , smooth, lovely gin but the Blue Stainsby Girl tips it for me . incredible .. go try it . :)
21:45 16 Feb 19
had my 1st taste of the valentine days el clasico wow just wow pomegranate and pistachio will definitely be ordering another bottle cause this ones not going to last very long

11:26 06 Feb 19
We received a bottle of El Classico after having found a lucky letter over Christmas. The gin is amazing. We will definitely be ordering a bottle after this one goes. Sad to have been at work and missed the delivery and a chance to speak to Jay though.
09:03 03 Feb 19
I ordered my first bottle on Friday and totally shocked to have Jay hand deliver it on Saturday! First class service and very much appreciated x
01:02 03 Feb 19
Just opened my stainsby girl gin, was worth waiting for..never mind the taste..the smell is amazing...looking forward to el classico...#santa was good to me x
00:48 02 Feb 19
Great taste, love the bottle and the mini hip flask, can’t wait to order another flavour many thanks
22:34 01 Feb 19
Just taken delivery of my second bottle of Stainsby Girl - first bottle was a birthday present from my daughter - I’m reciprocating now and have bought a bottle for her birthday - and one for me too. Apart from the gin being my all time favourite and to be sipped, savoured and shared with family and friends - the personal and efficient service and delivery is a delight. The icing on the cake is the fact that there is such a fabulous connection to our home town, Chris Rea and his wonderful music and the iconic Transporter Bridge 👌🍸 x
12:43 31 Jan 19
the new red is fruity ad delish
21:18 25 Jan 19
Great service! Managed to arrange a last minute order for me with no bother at all! Can’t wait to try it!
20:10 24 Jan 19
Yum yum yum. Hand delivered and tastes amazing! Beautiful bottle too
21:14 18 Jan 19
Absolutely brilliant combination of flavours to your gin! From order itself to delivery, it shows how passionate you are doing this. The longest introduction email I’ve read by far for an online purchase and the funniest and down to earth intro. The packaging is brilliant and hope to try the Classico flavour next!! Thank you!

22:36 14 Jan 19
Purchased El Classico as a gift for hubby's Christmas, it's just love and refreshing. Good to have something a but different. Takes pride and place in our Gin Rack A+
18:06 13 Jan 19
Absolutely amazing service from a local person! The level of care and attention to detail that goes into this is brilliant. From the order receipt email, to the wax sealed bottle, to the hip flask, to the hand written note on the box. A clear passion for what you’re doing and well worth every penny!
13:30 05 Jan 19
Bought a bottle (blue) a few weeks ago as a Christmas gift for my parents so couldn't comment until now. The gin was absolutely delicious, even my husband who doesn't like gin will now order it in bars that sell it. Also recieved a hand written thank you note with the bottle which included batch number etc which I thought was such a nice touch. Will 100% be buying more and have recommended to all my gin drinking friends. UTB 👍

Amazing bottle and information booklet haven’t opened it yet waiting for a special occasion it’s a wonderful Xmas present many thanks for dropping it off in time for Xmas many thanks
10:48 27 Dec 18
Thank you Jay Byers, steel river gin for making a special trip on Boxing Day to deliver my Gin. That’s what I call first class customer services 🤩🤩🤩Thanks.
19:48 26 Dec 18
My parents loved their Christmas gift... A bottle of the stainsby girl edition. Thank you for hand delivering it in time for Christmas. (My mam was a stainsby girl!’
18:30 26 Dec 18
I cannot fault Jay at all. I ordered a bottle of Stainsby Girl Gin for my husband.Coming from Teesside this gin has obvious sentimental meaning behind it. Jay has kept me updated from ordering to delivery, the bottle even came with a personal hand written note and batch certificate. ( please all do check junk email) I was impressed with how well informed I was, the personal service I received but also sitting now reading the emails to my husband (who’s gift it was) I am emotional at how humbled yet blown away Jay is at the success of his own business. I can’t wait to open the bottle and try this gin as the reviews are amazing. I suffer endless mocking from hubs for being a smoggy but if he loves and accepts me then he will surely love Steel River Gin. Thank you Jay, and teething problems do happen with any new business but honestly it’s not been an issue at all as a customer. Honesty is the best policy, and I have appreciated being kept up to date with any delays that may have occurred. Thanks once again Jay and Thank you for amazing service, and we wish you every success. Everyone else get buying this Gin and support a fantastic local business. X
17:36 26 Dec 18
so i won a bottle of el clasico gin in a comp with ink bar!! omg what a beautiful tasting gin!! i was reluctant to open it as the bottle alone is amazing...but the contents is so much better!!!
22:23 25 Dec 18
Words do not do this gin justice.. Try it for yourself 👌🍹
12:43 25 Dec 18
Firstly, fantastic service from Jay with great communication. Now the Gin, presentation of the bottle, as others have said, is excellent, so much so that you perhaps want to leave it unopened - but then you'll miss the the real treat. The Stainsby Girl Edition gin has a fantastic, fruity smell (sorry that should be nose shouldnt it) which immediately makes is moreish. Couple that with the violet (or Steel blue) colour and you have a very enticing drink. Mixed with tonic the fruity flavour continues and remains as a lovely, sweet aftertaste in the mouth. Well done Jay, a locally produced gin for Teesside to be proud of.
12:23 23 Dec 18
not open yet ! waiting for Christmas prezzie of my son
10:02 21 Dec 18
Fab gin, loved the packaging and the little personal note can’t wait to give it a try 😍 speedy delivery as well even though was told there would be a delay xx
20:34 20 Dec 18

14:36 19 Dec 18
Just received my very first bottle and it comes with mixed emotions as it’s a a Christmas gift😭😭😭 fantastic service and the presentation is just awesome!!! Jay👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻🙌🏻😍
17:21 15 Dec 18
Love this gin... but more than the gin, I love the bottle! I’ve got a bottle of each now and can’t wait to crack this bad boy open over Christmas! UTB
13:10 15 Dec 18
Beautiful presentation. It's almost too pretty to open. Will have to order another bottle for keeps. Brilliant local product to put Teesside on the map for the right reasons.
19:21 14 Dec 18
Love the gin, love the service and the personal note that comes with it. Thanks Jay. Merry Christmas!
11:36 14 Dec 18
Thank you so much for my lovely gin ! Loved the personal delivery service and chat am going to buy the new one ! Great service and communication with a sense of humor 😁
18:28 13 Dec 18
Would love to be able to recommend it but still havnt received my order which was placed and paid for on 6th September, can do without the stress of chasing this up continuously at this time of year, and have not had one reply! Either sent me my order or Ill have a refund please, thanks
08:49 09 Dec 18
Beautiful gin, amazing packaging and top class service.
23:56 28 Nov 18
Absolutely exceptional gin from an exceptionally hard working man. I sell it in my bar and I drink a lot of it myself. My customers absolutely adore it. Can't wait to try the new one.Thanks for everything Jay, you are a gent 👌
18:16 24 Nov 18
Thank you very much for the Gin Flask great service
15:42 22 Nov 18
Got a bottle of steel river gin stainsby girl for my birthday. its absolutely lovely!! the bottle looks awesome, the little attached hip flask is a nice touch and it tastes amazing! love it! will definately buy another bottle!!
18:00 17 Nov 18
Stainsby Girl limited edition - spot on!
15:14 15 Nov 18
Well I need to thank my in laws - when I unwrapped my birthday present today to find Stainsby Girl edition - it looked simply stunning - we poured a double topped with a decent tonic and watched it turn pink - it smelt amazing - but the real best bit is the taste ... simply amazing ! As far as gin goes - this is it.... the best.
20:51 06 Nov 18
Firstly, what a wonderful personal service with the delivery! It really adds to the experience, what with the personal note enclosed in the package, and having to crack the wax seal! Also LOVE the teeny hip flask...adorable! As for the gin itself...gorgeous! I just ADORE the colour change as you add the tonic (Fever Tree Mediterranean, although, I’ll be trying a Cucumber with it which I think will add whole new fresh dimension). The watermelon smell and flavour is beautifully soft, leaving a delicious aftertaste. It’s VERY easy to drink and very difficult to stop...I’d best be ordering another bottle or two!! The best bit is that it’s local. You can’t beat supporting a business that’s close to home. #Superb

Fantastic product, poor logistics.I appreciate this is a new company, and teething problems will arise, but customers should be informed of wait times at the time of ordering.My last bottle - bought as a leaving present - arrived after my colleague had left the company.The Gin is definitely worth the wait, however the wait becomes more and more tedious each time :(
10:28 02 Nov 18
Quite simply, the best gin on the market
20:01 27 Oct 18
Just got our first bottle of Steel River gin...it's stunning! - the nicest gin I have ever had...so smooth.
21:52 26 Oct 18

Couldn’t wait till the weekend to try after a mid week delivery! OMG I wasn’t disappointed 😊👍🏻 it’s amazing! What a beautiful taste and so matched the description ☺️ the whole experience has been amazing, ordering was so easy, I am so impressed by packaging, the leaflet and the personal letter. Thank you so much I will definitely be ordering again soon as this bottle won’t be lasting long 😊
20:10 25 Oct 18
Got my bottle today. Tastes delicious with notes of violet, hibiscus, lavender and rose. And I’m loving the hand bag size hip flask. Definitely another bottle will be bought �
19:03 22 Oct 18
It tastes wonderful, so different, love the way it changes colour when you add tonic!
12:35 17 Oct 18
Just opened up my first bottle, best gin I’ve ever tasted. Can’t wait to try the Classico.

Beautiful gin, beautifully packaged, beautifully designed and beautifully delivered! Jay I truly hope you continue your dreams and continue making great gin, always remember, I’m a great tester! I’m not a quality controller for nothing you know x Good luck for your future endeavours 💜
18:21 29 Sep 18
We attended the bank holiday gin cruise in Durham, a fantastic day and won a free cruise this weekend in the raffle.It is a sad state of affair when they don’t uphold their raffle prizes or even answer your emails regarding this event.Needless to say we are extremely disappointed and certainly would not recommend this event, please be aware anyone taking part.
09:09 29 Sep 18
Looks amazing and tastes great 🖤 Thank you x

19:07 31 Aug 18
Still waiting for the gin my partner ordered nearly 2 weeks ago. No reply to 2 emails. Money taken but no idea when it's expected . He even mentioned it was a birthday present but too late now.
10:40 28 Aug 18
Gorgeous gin, full of flavour. Excellent service and a personalised note from Jay. Lovely personal touch. Can't wait to get my hands on the clasic edition when it comes out. If it tastes as good as Stainsby Girl, I'm in for a treat!
10:12 27 Aug 18
Lovely Gin ... something different!! Will definitely have again .
17:19 26 Aug 18
Haven’t opened the bottle yet as it’s just been delivered! But can’t wait to try this and if I’m honest... I fell in love with the bottle first and foremost 😂😊

14:08 15 Aug 18
If I could only have one drink for the rest of my life it would be this!!!! It’s amazing!!
13:27 13 Aug 18
Probably the nicest Gin I've ever tasted!, I ain't no gin enthusiast but went for a quiet drink in the local last week (The Derry) and spent the best part of £40 on 4 drinks (tonics expensive) and didn't even mind it was that nice!! well done on doing the North East proud
23:27 12 Aug 18
Amazing time on the Edinburgh Cruise last night. Absolutely loved your steel river gin. Even though i probably murdered it with lemonade 😂 Will defo be buying a bottle and be back on the cruise next year. Thanks for a great night Jay!
09:24 12 Aug 18
Beautiful Gin! I was so happy when I saw this on the shelf when out for a family that I couldn't get to the bar quick enough. I have been eager to try it for weeks and I certainly was not disappointed. I'll be ordering a bottle to enjoy at home as soon as I can. Such a beautiful refreshing taste I can't wait to have it again.
21:43 11 Aug 18
Just arrived today! Very impressed with the bottle, the colour and the taste!! Will be recommending to everyone, thank you Jay :)

12:54 09 Aug 18
Cracked open this gin tonight where we live in Indonesia to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Was worried about the colour and im not a fan of the gin craze but wanted to support local and give a unique gift to my other half . Absolutely loved it. It’s bubblegum meets watermelon in a really really good way. Will be trying them all. The personal service was top notch too.
22:01 07 Aug 18
Love it!! Hope to purchase a bottle or two for my hubby & sister for xmas. xx
13:22 07 Aug 18
Wow, what an amazing gin. Been looking forward to the bottle of Stainsby Girl, arrived today and tried tonight. Great theatrics, wonderful taste and well worth the (short) wait, thank you, definitely will be buying again!
21:05 03 Aug 18
Tried some for first time at orange pip last weekend (july 18) and bought some on the spot, other than struggling to get into the bottle (the wax seal didn’t open as i thought it would) Once open and poured i loved it even more! Taking this on a road trip to Manchester for a friend to try as it is amazing and she is dying to try it and add it to her collection! I especially loved the hand written note I got in my box it was such a lovely gesture. Happy to say i’ve found my new favorite drink!!!! 😁
01:11 03 Aug 18
Cracked a bottle of this amazing Gin last week for my daughters 40th birthday, from the first pour to the last sip, amazing flavours, smooth and very moreish, in fact far toooooooooo moreish, I now need another bottle, as do not want to open the other bottle I have in the cupboard due to the amazing presentation. xx thanks Jay for the whole experience Wow Wow Wow xx
07:56 22 Jul 18

21:44 19 Jul 18
Bought two bottles of the Stainsby Girl limited first edition, one to open - one to keep. I couldn't bring myself to break the seal though, the bottle looked so good! Anyway, I finally gave in to temptation and WOW - what an amazing drink... it's my new favourite! Now I have to use all my willpower not to open that second bottle that I'm keeping. Will definitely be buying more �
15:37 17 Jul 18
Introduced a bottle to our Gin range at our Bar No.17 at Bishop Auckland yesterday. Wow what a belter. We will need another by the end of the day. Branding is amazing
15:14 01 Jul 18
Gorgeous gin! Well done Jay xxx
13:52 23 Jun 18
Just tasted your Stainsby Girl gin with Andrew Rogers - and I ageee, it is fucking gorgeous
11:58 23 Jun 18
WOW I've given in to temptation and have to say I'm very impressed. The taste is spectacular and nothing like I've tasted before. Always been a Bombay Eastern/Sapphire girl but this has definitely got so much more depth to it. Colour is amazing and about to order more for daughters. Thank you
18:18 22 Jun 18
OMG! Amazing!! Thank you! The bottle is so beautiful, my other half didn’t want to open it...but we’re so glad we did. Unreal!
18:40 17 Jun 18
Tried it for the first time last night, loved it x

22:35 15 Jun 18
So my Gin arrived yesterday, well packaged and with a hand written, personalised note to thank me for my purchase and telling me what batch number and bottle number I received. Little touches like that go a long way.The gin itself is such a beautiful purple colour. Smells absolutely amazing. And well the taste... Its out of this world. I have never tasted anything quite like it.Will defo be keeping a constant supply of 'stainsby girl' in the cupboard and super excited for the launch of the 'classic'.Well done Jay, you have most definitely put teesside on the Gin map �

Got my long awaited gin, it promised to deliver flavours summer and Spain. I am a dry gin drinker and the dryer the better so was a little concerned as I don't like the gimmicky gins available everywhere but wanted to support a local guy. It is delicious. The flavours at first seem fruity but it's so much more than that, it was a taste sensation. Dry, not too sweet, the smell is delightful enticing you to try it. You won't be disappointed if you try it it. Can't wait for the next Steel River Gin. From an impatient woman, the wait was worth it.

Stainsby Girl Limited Edition. Worth the wait! It is quite an unusual flavour but lovely all the same. I look forward to trying Jay’s other gins when available.

This is an amazing gin. It tastes delicious and smells gorgeous. It’s also a beautiful colour. Flavours of watermelon , grapefruit and summer. Just add tonic & ice. If you like gin - you’ll LOVE this! Try it you will not be disappointed ���
