If you 'd like to buy any of Belvedere's assets, you've got until 14 December to let them know

Belvedere has set a deadline for offers for any of its assets.

The company said last month that it is looking to resolve its financial difficulties, either through a conversion of its creditors' claims into share capital, or through an asset sale. The latter route entails potential suitors expressing their interest to Belvedere's receiver by 14 December, the company said earlier this month.

Potential bidders for any of Belvedere's brands, which include Sobieski vodka and Marie Brizard liqueurs, would have to sign a non-disclosure agreement ahead of receiving information from the receiver.

"The Commercial Court of Dijon will have to rule by no later than 20 March, 2013 on the approval of the rehabilitation plan as per one of the two above-mentioned scenarios, with or without a potential partial disposal plan, on the basis of the to-be-received purchase offers," the company said.

Belvedere is struggling with debts, which are thought to total in the region of EUR400m (US$518.6m).
