Hard to find cocktail ingredients near San Diego?

I've been looking for some hard to find cocktail ingredients lately (ran out), and can't seem to find any around here. My standby (Holiday Wine Cellar in Escondido) has come up empty on multiple occasions. Here's what I'm in the market for:

Fee's Bitters (any kind, but Aromatic mostly)
Carpano Antica vermouth
Luxardo Maraschino
a good rye selection (Rittenhouse especially)
Domaine du Canton (ginger liquor)
Malort

I'm resigned to the fact that I probably won't find any malort around here (it's a chicago staple), but the others should not be this hard to find. Maybe I'm just having bad luck, or having found a good shop.
