Ken Loach’s new film, The Angel’s Share, which was filmed on location in Scottish distilleries, has collected the Jury Prize at the prestigious Cannes Film Festival.

The film concerns disenchanted youths who come up with a get-rich-quick scheme following the visit to a distillery.

The BBC website quoted the famous director as saying: “It’s about a handful of those people who face a life with no real place in society because there is so much unemployment.

“It’s partly serious, partly comedy.”

Both the Glengoyne and Deanston distilleries were used as locations for Loach’s firm, which also features Charles Maclean’s acting debut – as a whisky expert.
