Jeremy Clarkson issued a frantic warning to customers over Twitter last night after fears emerged yesterday that a batch of his cider bottles could explode.

Diddly Squat Farm has told people to dispose of any Hawkstone cider if the cap has the code L3160.

The explosion risk is supposedly caused by over-fermentation.

In response, the former Top Gear presenter tweeted: “There's been a massive c*** up and as a result, there's a very slim chance, some of our Hawkstone CIDER bottles might, there's no easy way of saying this, explode.

“If the cap has the code L3160, open it underwater, pour it away and get in touch for a refund.”

Mr Clarkson continued: “Really sorry about this but on the upside, the beer is fine and still delicious.

“As is the cider, in bottles that are unaffected.

“Which is almost all of them.”

The 63-year-old and Cotswold Brew Co launched the Hawkstone range of premium lager and cider in 2021.
