Jeremy Clarkson has issued another warning to anyone who bought some of the Hawkstone Cider from his Diddly Squat Farm shop because of fears that some of the bottles might explode.

Basically, Clarkson has been selling his cider out of the shop in Oxfordshire, but one batch is a little bit over-fermented, meaning that there are concerns that some bottles might explode upon opening.

He’s issued a warning before, telling customers how they could ‘defuse’ their bottles before getting a refund, but now he’s offered some tips on how to open the bottles safely.

The former Top Gear host tweeted: “This is important. If you have any Hawkstone cider at home, please please please check the cap.

“If it has the code L3160, e mail us at [email protected] for help and advice. Do not handle the bottles unless you are wearing protective clothing and goggles.”

Now, we’ve seen this sort of patter from Clarkson and his ilk before, so – completely understandably – some folks thought that he must be taking the p***.

One person even put that directly to him, telling the TV personality: “Unfortunately never know if your [sic] serious or not.”

However, it seems as if this isn’t a joke.

Clarkson responded: “I am serious this time.

“We have had some success in finding the affected bottles but some are still out there. And we need to find them.”

The last time, Clarkson had made a few jokes during an Instagram video before telling his followers about the affected brew.

Basically, he told everyone that the code – the same one mentioned in the later tweet – is how you can tell if you’ve got a combustible cider or not.

We’ll mention that again for good measure – L3160.

Then, Clarkson illustrated how to safely open the bottles in the video that you can see above.

You have to submerge the cider into a tub of water and then gently open the bottle.

It’s probably going to fizz up quite a lot, so expect a bit of that.

But, once safely opened the bottles should pose no further threat of explosion, and anyone who has received any from that particular batch can send off the cap to get a refund.

Announcing the news for the first time, he had written: "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.”

He added: "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."

It’s not exactly what you might expect when sitting down for a refreshing drink, but what’s life without a little adventure, eh?
