Melt the butter in the microwave. Add the crushed biscuits and stir to combine. Press into the bottom of a 23cm round springform cake tin. Place in the fridge or freezer while you prepare the filling.
Combine the boiling water from the kettle with the gelatine and icing sugar. Whisk well until the gelatine has dissolved. Set aside.
In a large bowl, combine the yoghurt, goat cheese and vanilla. Whisk well, then add the gelatine mixture, stirring vigorously. Gently stir in the redcurrants.
Pour the mixture over the biscuit base, then transfer to the fridge to set for at least 3 hours or overnight. Just before serving, garnish the top of the cheesecake with additional redcurrants.
