Stolen Thrones cigars was created in 2019 by friends and co-workers JR Cannon and Lee Marsh. The name is derived from the resistance they encountered after they announced their intention to create a new brand. . “Someone in the industry — whom we won’t name — didn’t take too kindly to the idea of JR and I venturing into the business,” says Lee, that unnamed person commenting to the effect of, “There’s no seat for you at the table.” Lee’s response: “I’ll steal one.” Meet Stolen Throne. Since then, Stolen Throne has since become one of the industry’s leading up-and-coming brands.
