Top 50 Whisky Themed Names for Cats and Dogs

Top whisky themed names for cats and dogs is a bit of a random post eh? Well maybe not.

I often get a wry smile from people when they find out my two pensioner cats are called Bailey and Malibu, then my wife asked me what whisky I’d name any new pets after… so I thought I’d put together a list of the top whisky themed names for cats and dogs in case it might help you too.

In fact, our previous cat was called Tipsy…

Here’s the list I have put together; do you have any to add?

GreatDrams Blended Cask Series Batch 02.


We have approached this Blended Cask Series Release a little differently, using one grain component, a 13 Year Old from the North British Distillery and two Single Malt components – an 11 Year Old ex-Bourbon cask from the Glen Moray Distillery and a 7 Year Old 1st-fill Ruby Port Wine Barrique from the Knockdhu Distillery. The resulting flavour is smooth, easy-drinking with notes of chocolate and berry fruits along with a vanilla sweetness to round it off.

  1. We once arrived at Bladnoch after some heavy rain, and everyone was busy dealing with the flooding, but we were sent round the distillery on our own accompanied most of the way by the two distillery cats: Bourbon & Sherry.
