Prince Alexis Obolensky was a real guy, and a colorful figure at that. His family fled the Bolsheviks and traveled through Europe and, apparently, the United States. Incidentally, the prince would have been about to turn 18 when this ad ran, so he came upon his sophisticated after-dinner beverages as a youngster. He died fairly recently, in 2006.
