Alpestre is the only brand that belongs to OnestiGroup S.P.A. It began in France in the Hermitage on the Gier River in 1857 and was the work of Brother Emanuele of the Marist Brothers, who wished to cure his fellow monks. Later it was used by the French government to cure soldiers on the front lines (and thus the name “Arquebuse”).
