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.

Montreal's Mile End skatepark is set to host a huge nighttime block party this September as part of MAPP_MTL's sixth edition.
The event, billed as "Montreal's projection mapping festival," is a celebration of digital art. The block party will feature monumental digital creations cast on the surrounding buildings, illuminating the skatepark as electronic music plays.
Local restaurant Nakamichi will be serving Japanese fried chicken and pastries over the course of the electric event.
In a press release, MAPP_MTL says there will also be a "small shopping area" showcasing local businesses.
Digital artworks will include work by artist Delphine Dussoubs (Dalkhafine) and minute-long projections by artists from Quebec and around the world, as well as what the festival describes as "works improvised by creators and members of the public [unfolding] in real-time."
Located in the heart of the city, the rooms in this horror escape room game in Montreal may give you more chills than your favourite scary movie and one of them is so disturbing that it's only for people 16 years and older.
Among the themes presented are The Unknown for ages 16 and up, Insomnium, which is reminiscent of the famous Stranger Things series, The Cabin in the Woods and the Haunted Pirate Ship.
The Unknown is rated at a difficulty level of four out of five and is done in groups of two to four. The room is described as a social experiment that turns into a nightmare when the line between game and reality is not completely clear.
The cost is $25 per person and, depending on the theme you choose to discover, you can be from two to eight people to solve the puzzle and escape the room.
To book your immersion into this creepy setting, you can go to its website and choose the time that suits you and your gang best. It's advisable to make a reservation as soon as possible because places get filled up quickly!
