Cinchona Bark sources?

Hey there, I've had a hard time finding Cinchona Bark for, you guessed it, making my own tonic. I've tried Christina's Spices in Inman square, Cambridge Naturals in Porter, and the Modern Homebrew Emporium (they were quite a stretch but on my way home). Does anyone have any trusty sources that they know keep this stuff in stock? I need to reach out to Penzeys, they're probably my best bet. At this point, I'd take either the bark chips or powder. Thanks!

Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao??

I've been trying to get my hands on a bottle of Pierre Ferrand Dry Curaçao but am coming up dry. This formula was created to reinvigorate the market with an original style, bitter Curaçao that harkens back to the 19-century and looks the other way from the overly sweet, artificially blue Curaçao of today's poolside vacationers. I know it's available in MA because I was served a cocktail with it at Park in Harvard Square when a friend of mine was tending bar there in their first months but have been to a few shops around my area with no luck. Anyone seen this stuff around?
