Do these ingredients ever spoil?

White sugar - I've had it get hard on me but I know in olden days they had cones of solid sugar and would scrape off what they needed so it seems it would never spoil.

Salt - does it lose potency like other spices or will it last forever?

Alcohol - I don't drink but keep some on hand for cooking and baking. Will Grand Marnier and Cognac last indefinitely? I've had them on the shelf for several years.

Cocoa powder - will this go rancid at some point?

Vinegar - I've had plain white vinegar for 3 or 4 years but some balsamic seemed to go bad after a year or so.
