You can get Industrial Denatured Alcohol (IDA) which is meths without the methyl violet and has the advantage that it is 99% alcohol rather than the regular 90% of meths. The downside is the requirement to have authorisation from HMRC, but for small quantities, it is a fairly quick application process.

Update: HMRC published a proposal in April to change the formulation of CDA (a.k.a. meths) to bring it in line with the rest of the E.U. - Upshot is that there will no longer be a requirement to add a dye for meths sold in the UK.
