Damson Gin is a liqueur, usually homemade, made from damson plums macerated in a sugar and gin syrup for eight weeks or more. Vodka is sometimes used in place of the gin. The proof will vary somewhat but generally is around 44.

Damson gin is especially popular in Britain. The plums are ripe in early September and the liqueur can be used as a Christmas treat.
