Jeremy Clarkson has announced a product recall for his cider in the most unusual way.
The former Top Gear presenter, 63, took to Twitter on Friday night and began his post with a string of expletives – 6 f**ks to be precise – before warning consumers some bottles of the booze could ‘explode.’
The Clarkson’s Farm star continued: ‘There’s been a massive cock 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.
‘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 drinks brand was launched in 2021, with its primary ingredients coming directly from Clarkson’s Diddly Squat farm in Chipping Norton.
Diddly Squat is the subject of Clarkson’s Farm, which documents Jeremy getting to grips with the workings of his 1,000-acre operation in the Cotswolds.
A post on Instagram from Hawkstone explained that the issue is due to ‘a small amount’ of the cider ‘over fermenting.’
The brand also said: ‘Take a photo of the caps and we will send you a fresh batch or a refund.’
The latest series of Clarkson’s Amazon series sees the farm get new animals and crops and become involved in meetings with the local council over planning.
Jeremy, who purchased the farm in 2008 and started running it himself in 2019, has received a poor reaction from some villagers when he has sought to expand the business with a farm shop and restaurant.
A third series is set to chronicle another year at the farm.
Jeremy also co-hosts Amazon Prime TV series The Grand Tour with his former Top Gear co-presenters Richard Hammond and James May, along with presenting ITV gameshow Who Wants To Be A Millionaire?
