Victoria Beckham takes hipflask to the theatre to avoid interval wine

The Beckhams are known for their expensive tastes and love of status symbol wines.

The Beckhams are known for their love of fine wine.

So it comes as no surprise that Victoria Beckham carries a personal hipflask to prevent bog-standard alcohol entering her bloodstream.

The matriarch of the Beckham clan was in London’s West End on Tuesday Night to see Tina – The Tina Turner Musical, but told her 24 million Instagram followers that a friend said she “might not like the wine” at the bar.

Beckham, who has an aversion to affordable wines, and has even said in the past that she wouldn’t drink anything from a bottle costing below £10, brought personalised hipflasks and filled them with Tequila before heading to the show.

“Always good to be prepared,” she posted on her Instagram story feed last night.

“No really…it is all about the preparation!”

The hipflasks were engraved with the names of her mother Jackie, hairdresser and close friend Ken Paves, and journalist Derek Blasberg.

The Aldwych theatre in Covent Garden, which is running the musical, has been approached for comment.

Despite sneaking her own in last night, the Beckhams have a track record of splashing out on booze. David and Victoria celebrated their wedding anniversary last June by ordering a 1990 Chateau Lafite Rothschild from Pauillac, Haut-Medoc while dining at a restaurant in Paris. It has been known to sell for anything between £350 and £1,544.

Posh and Becks spared no expense when they drank almost £2,000 worth of vintage wine during a mid-week date night in October 2017. Their drinks for the evening included a Château Margaux Grand Vin 1995, priced at £716 per bottle, a Château Cheval Blanc 2012 Premiere Grand Cru at £430, and a Château Lafleur Pomerol 2006, which costs £601.

And in December 2017, Victoria cracked open a bottle of cultish red wine Screaming Eagle to celebrate the Beckhams’ son, Brooklyn, returning to London from the US for Christmas.

So dedicated an oenophile is Victoria, husband David bought her a Napa Valley vineyard as a gift in 2008.
