Recognise your fellow Mumsnetters by nominating your favourite Mumsnet user to win Silent Pool gin

To tie in with their new #FortheSpirited campaign, Silent Pool Gin is on a quest to unearth the UK’s most spirited characters – and the search starts right here. For two months, the award-winning distillers will be celebrating the spirit of Mumsnet by getting you to nominate the users who you think show the most – well – spirit. They'll be giving one bottle of gin per week to a winning Mumsnet user. In addition, if your nominee wins, you'll also receive a shopping voucher worth £30..

Here’s what Silent Pool Gin have to say:
“For the spirited. Three small words that capture the essence of Silent Pool Gin. It represents our independent mindset and our uncompromising commitment to producing a gin with a refreshingly individual character.

For the spirited is about following your own path. Embracing life and living for the best things it has to offer. It’s about doing something kind, inspiring, creative, different. Could be finally handing in your notice, booking that round-the-world trip, starting that new Japanese course or even just deciding to make your very first post on AIBU.

Whatever your version of ‘spirited' is, we applaud you. However, applause only gets you so far, so to officially recognise the wonderful achievements of the Mumsnet community, we are launching the Silent Pool Gin For the Spirited award. Each week, one lucky Mumsnet member will be recognised as a kindred spirit and will win one bottle of Silent Pool Gin.

Also we’d love to hear your spirited stories so please tag us in at #forthespirited @silentpoolgin

There's no such thing as a best Mumsnet user but you probably have your favourite(s). Is there someone: Whose posts you always read? Who brightens your days and whose views keep you glued to the screen? Who has given you priceless advice, yet you wouldn't know from Adam in real life?

Every week for two months, Silent Pool will be giving the #FortheSpirited award to one lucky Mumsnet user – with the prize of a bottle of gin. Simply nominate your favourite Mumsnet user on the discussion thread and they'll be in with a chance of winning. In turn, if your nominee wins, you'll also receive a £30 voucher. Win, win (gin) Gin.

Thanks and good luck!



Terms and conditions of prize draw:
Activity specific T&Cs: Mumsnet will run a random prize draw once per week. The nominees within the winning entries will be contacted via email or PM to inform them of the win, and to ask if they would like to receive the prize. A non-alcoholic prize will also be available if desired. To receive an alcoholic prize, nominees will need to provide a copy of photographic ID to Mumsnet (eg a photograph of a passport or driving licence), as well as a physical name and address for the prize to be dispatched to. The name and address will be shared with Silent Pool Gin, with the user's permission. Mumsnet will dispose of this information within one week of users' receipt of the prize. Posters of the winning entries will be emailed by Mumsnet to inform them of the win, and to give them the opportunity to choose the voucher they would like. Their name and email address, with the user's permission, will be shared with Mumsnet's voucher fulfilment company for the purposes of ordering the voucher. Voucher winner's details will be retained for audit purposes. Winner's details will be used for the purpose of the prize draw and prize delivery only, and not for any other marketing purpose. Standard Mumsnet T&Cs can be found here.

I'd like to nominate @cricketmum84 as she did a great job on a recent weight loss thread and this would be a lovely way to thank her!

FamilyOfAliens · 12/07/2019 17:06

I’d like to nominate @Datun for her wisdom and clarity.

CanoeDoYouThinkYouAre · 12/07/2019 17:06

I have always been in awe of Sadwidow and her dedication to posters who are struggling.

GooodMythicalMorning · 12/07/2019 17:06

pigletjohn for literally helping everyone.

A sad loss.

joanofbarc · 12/07/2019 17:29

Paxillin is lovely.

JaimeBronde · 12/07/2019 17:31

I'd like to nominate @Iambuffy from the Perfumistas threads on style & beauty.
She's very friendly & knowledge & she makes me smile.
Though the main reason I nominated her is because she's having a bit of a hard time at the moment as her kitchen caught fire & the house could have gone up through the stupidity of tradesman.
I think she really could do with the gin.

LoseLooseLucy · 12/07/2019 17:33

BertrandRussell, for being a great source of knowledge and opinion.

ReganSomerset · 12/07/2019 17:33

I nominate mathanxiety.

@OhYouBadBadKitten for her weatherwatching.

twattymctwatterson · 12/07/2019 17:39

Anyfucker for me. Gives great advice, no nonsense approach and seems to really care about getting women out of shitty relationships

FlaviaAlbia · 12/07/2019 17:40

@Datun for her patience and calm logic

dontdoxmeeither · 12/07/2019 17:45

I vote @datun too. Her (and other people's) posts have made me see the importance of current issues surrounding women/biological females. @datun stands out for me for putting it in a way I can understand.
