My main concern is the level of supervision necessary not the kulos that may be used. As far as what kulos, find out what they are doing in regard to considering the products mevushal.
I'm no expert on kashrus, So correct me if I'm wrong, but what I've heard is that OU supervision is top notch, it's the kulos that people don't like.

I believe you are correct. Which is why someone I know, who is a big machmir, only eats food that has BOTH a chasiddish hechsher AND the OU. The rational is that the chassidish hechsher will implement stringent policies, and the OU will make sure the policies are indeed held to.

What’s the deal with peach schnapps? Generally kosher, requires certification, always non kosher?

Ensuring no goy touches anything from pressing till bottling is complicated.

Not sure what makes you think this. It's done by big machinery in most cases, takes a handful of people to operate. Why is it complicated to have 5-10 shomrei Shabbos doing it? Remember, many (maybe even most) OU certified wines are from Israel.

There is nothing inherently non kosher so no reason it should be always non kosher. In reality it depends on producer. Generally people won't drink without a hechsher unless there eia good knowledge that the producer doesn't process any grape distillates. I'm sure there are supervised and certified peach schnapps available. I'm referring to fruit distillates, schnapps can mean many things though.

There is definitely a certified brand, all the kosher liquor stores should sell it.
I wonder what people who type "u" instead of "you" do with all their free time.

Leroux and Dekuyper are two brands that are kosher. I'm sure there are more.

Are they distillates? Or some grain spirit based flavored thing?

What benefit is there to being in israel? Unfortunately living in israel doesnt make one shomer shabbos. The owners / hired staff are in many cases not exactly what would be considered frum. This based on factories I have went to and the way they market themselves.
Unless you mean to say it is easier to find mashgichim.

The wineries are so much more accessible. It's much easier to employ frum people for the operation. The way they market has nothing to do with it.  A kosher certified and quite well know winery had big pride month events. They still want kashrus (most need it to stay financially viable). Whoever is in the industry knows that everything (nearly) pre bottling needs to be done by shomrei shabbos.

They have a shomer Shabbos pull the barrel sample.

The difference between what you call reality and what @aygart calls perception might be semantics.
I call reality something you can point to as a specific item that you can clearly show a difference between the different hechsherim. Meanwhile we have only seen vagaries.
