Of all the things you'd expect to find as you walk along Boulevard Saint-Laurent, a 7-foot-tall, gin-inspired hedge maze probably isn't one of them. But from August 6 to 8, Bombay Sapphire is building a labyrinth full of surprises in the Old Port — and, yes, that does include free gin samples for Quebecers aged 18 and up.

A Bombay spokesperson described the maze as a "large-scale [...] whimsical oasis" with walls that "cloak the discoverable experiences within."

The maze installations are being created by Quebec's Charlie Larouche (Glassware Artist), Jeroen Kleijn (DJ & Olfactory Artist) and Chantal Royer (Botanical Artist) who were inspired by the taste of Bombay Bramble, a new naturally-flavoured raspberry and blackberry gin.

The experience will be completely free, and anyone over the age of 18 can take part.

In addition to a Bombay Bramble sample, guests will leave with a signature Bombay Sapphire Balloon Glass that they can use to stir up fun drinks at home.
