You can make your own. Just get 1 litre of cheap gin, add 500g damson plums and 250 grams sugar and a vanilla pod. Put the ingredients into a kinner jar and give a shake every day. After two months filter out the contents through a coffee filter into a bottle, then you have 1 litre of plum and vanilla gin.

Is true of any style of gin, easy to make at home with vodka and herbs/fruit/whatever. Problem is that the process is messy, wasteful, and the finished product is never as clean and clear as properly filtered factory made gin. Doesn't even save money because the spirit base costs as much as gin anyway.

It's not messy, you just put the ingredients in a kilner jar and shake it.
You can get gin for cheaper than 50cl for £14.19 as in this offer so the base is much cheaper that the price of plum gin.
If you filter the product through a coffee filter, or even a sheet of kitchen towel, the gin will be clear.
It also tastes better, just because you made it yourself.

Your last paragraph makes me wonder whether you've actually done this yourself because filtering through coffee filters is nearly impossible, they clog up, and I doubt whether kitchen paper is possible at all. I've stood in my kitchen filtering through coffee filters. It clogs, overflows, about 1/3 of it gets lost stuck in the bottom of the filter, and after hours and hours, leaving it overnight even, it still doesn't come out anywhere near as clear as commercial gin.

Yes, I've done it before and I'm currently making some damson gin. It's already pretty clear when it's in the kilner jar. You don't mash the damsons or plums up when you put them in the gin, you just pierce them with a fork before you put them in. So they stay as whole plumbs through the entire process so there are very few small particles in the gin from the start.
Have you ever tried it because from your responses it sounds like you haven't?

Here is a photo of my damson gin that I've just taken, it currently has 1 month to go before I filter it. It gets a shake every day.
